Dutch Focus at NewFilmmakers LA

8 December 2020

NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) in partnership with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) co-host a new edition of the annual NewFilmmakers Los Angeles (NFMLA) Film Festival InFocus: Middle Eastern, Arab & Dutch Cinema program, powered by Seed&Spark.

The festival takes place virtually December 11th-12th, 2020. The weekend will feature an international lineup of films by talented emerging filmmakers across three short film programs. The event will include virtual screenings, filmmaker Q&A's and industry panels.

Short film program InFocus: Dutch Cinema is a collection of exciting work from up-and-coming Dutch short film directors co-presented by Dutch Culture USA (Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in New York) and curated in partnership with SEE NL. This year's program, which includes 2020 Student Academy Award Nominated crime drama Porfotto by director Edson da Conceicao and Marieke de Zwaan's meditative So I Stay, this year's winner of Go Short's Academy-Qualifying Dutch Competition, asks us to ponder what we value in our world and how we find our place in it.
