L.A. Film Fest gets $30K grant

AMPAS funds will help new filmmakers

The foundation arm of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences has awarded the Los Angeles Film Festival a $30,000 grant to help make the fest more accessible and give greater access to emerging filmmakers.

L.A. was one of 24 U.S. film festivals to receive grants, and this one will fund the L.A. fest’s Intl. Spotlight, focusing on filmmaking trends abroad. Last year’s Spotlight featured selections from the Ambulante Film Festival showcasing Mexican cinema.

Next year’s L.A. fest will be held in June. Organizers are accepting submissions for short films until Feb. 5 and for feature-length films until March 1.
