J. Kim Murphy Awards courting, auctioning among distributors and corporate-sponsored parties can really take the “film” out of “film festival,” with moviegoing sometimes becoming an afterthought to more market-oriented activities at the industry’s legacy gatherings.

The Los Angeles Festival of Movies is not one of those film festivals. Launching this coming weekend, LAFM is screening an eclectic and diverse slate of independent features across a trio of theaters on the east side of Los Angeles, a world away from the shadows of studio lots and agencies.

The festival is co-presented by the world cinema streamer Mubi and the non-profit Mezzanine, which has been programming in L.A.

for more than two years, screening contemporary indies, avant garde work and underseen repertory features for an audience that has grown to trust its adventurous taste.
