The 10th annual DTLA Film Festival, October 17-21 at Regal L.A. Live and venues throughout downtown Los Angeles, announced today its short form content programming, consisting of 77 short films, TV pilots and web series episodes (in addition to the 30 feature films announced earlier). 

“The role that our festival plays in showcasing the works of emerging filmmakers and particularly women, and people of color, in the historic center of the Film Capital of the World, is more important than ever,” said Karolyne Sosa, director of programming. “The talent and creativity of groups underrepresented by Hollywood is prodigious and evident in our own programming line-up. Now, there’s the hard work for all us in breaking down the barriers that keep women and people of color out of Hollywood.”

Anchoring the festival’s short film content programming are the short films series, curated by Robert Torres Emerging Artists, Queer Expressions, Our Modern World, Strange Encounters, Spotlight on Latin Shorts and DTLA Shorts. Sosa curated three other series of shorts program under the banner of L.A. Artists, which showcases local LA talent. 

Rounding out the short-form content are programs devoted to new and established web series and to TV pilots, both with a focus on women and people of color. Monica Jones curated the TV web series; Jade Jenise Dixon and Suki Ramirez curated the TV pilots series.

A complete list of short-form content screening at the festival can be found on the festival’s website.
