The Downtown Film Festival Los Angeles (DFFLA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to showcasing the best in independent cinema in the heart of the world’s entertainment and arts capital, according to its website. “Our programming reflects downtown L.A.’s vibrant new urbanism, the unique ethnic and cultural diversity of its communities and neighborhoods, and its seminal role in the early days of American cinema. Set against the historic backdrop of City Center, DFFLA serves as a beacon for movie fans and industry professionals throughout Southern California.”
The “Young Turks” and other artists around in the 1970s and ’80s were pioneers of this “vibrant new urbanism,” and filmmakers Stephen Seemayer and Pamela Wilson are very pleased to have “Young Turks” included among the films selected for this celebration of downtown history.
Showtimes and locations will be announced later this week.
