    On the Road: LA

    On the Road: LA allows Angelenos to discover LA through the lens of underrepresented people (immigrants, people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ). Film Independent will award five grants to filmmakers to create short films about the intersections of identity and culture in LA. Films will explore an LA neighborhood— titled by an intersection—and screen at our inclusion summit with a panel discussion, helping to further dialogue between Angelenos and communities under attack.
