Matt Skallerud's insight:

Getting Started had its world premiere in April 2018 at OUTShine Film Festival where it won the Audience Award for Best Short Film. It has also won the Audience Choice Award and Lily Tomlin Best of Fest Award at Cinema Systers Film Festival, and Best Comedy Short Film at the Kansas City LGBT Film Festival. The movie tells the story of Tori and Joy who, after meeting online, have their first date and chemistry ensues. But will their mutual attraction be enough to overcome the challenges that arise?

If You've Never Been to the LGBT Center's CineArte Film Festival, the Time Is Now

If You've Never Been to the LGBT Center's CineArte Film Festival, the Time Is Now | LGBT Movies, Theatre, FIlm & Music | Scoop.it

Four years ago, there were zero film and art festivals in the country dedicated to the queer latinx community. Thanks to Jon Imparato, director of the LGBT center, and Karla Legspy, program director, Los Angeles is home to the first: this month’s CineArte Latinx Queer Festival (“latinx” being a gender-neutral alternative for latinos). The event, which features 14 short films and one feature film, art exhibits, and three days of live music, returns to the Los Angeles LGBT Center April 21 through the 23.


Via CenterLink LGBT
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Imparato started the CineArte festival in hopes of providing a space for latinx people to tell their stories and display the diverse cultural history of this community through visual art and film. This year’s event features the work of more than 10 local artists who are trans, queer, gender non-conforming, lesbian, and gay. “We try to program as many L.A. artists as possible,” Legspy says. “We try to get art that our community is making.”
