The Los Angeles Diversity Film Festival runs from Tuesday, Aug. 4, through Sunday, Aug. 20, highlighting narratives and experiences of those who have received less attention while celebrating the power of storytelling and filmmaking.
Due to COVID-19, the 2020 film festival will be held entirely online at ladff.com. The traditional in-person model has been altered into a media-rich, month-long stream-from-home festival. Filmmakers from around the world will inspire, embrace and empower each other. Organizers hope the online festival reach a wider audience and help amplify voices around the world.
The Los Angeles Diversity Film Festival features 57 official selections from 17 countries. Women directed 54% of the films to be shown during the festival, and 61.4% of the films were directed by people of color.
“LADFF has always strived to program films that showcase both the beauty and ugliness in the world in order to inspire people to get together and make this the best world it can be,” Festival Director Sonja Mereu said. “Right now, more than any time we can remember, the ugliness of the world is laid bare for everyone to see and people are actively trying to radically re-envision what our future will be.”
