Değerli Festival dostlarımız, 3 yıldır Mart ayında yaptığımız Festivalimizi Türkiye’nin Oskar adayı filmlerinin kampanya süreçlerini daha iyi destekleyebilmek için Kasım ayına almıştık. Ancak Kasım ayında Oskar’ın bölge sinemalarında oluşturduğu yoğunluk LA Başkonsolosluğu ve Sinema Genel Müdürlüğü’nün samimi desteklerine rağmen, kaliteden ödün vermemek adına Festivalimizi yapamıyoruz. Festival takımımız üzgün. Şu metni sizinle paylaştığımız ana dek takımımız, Festivalimizi yeni tarihlerinde yapabilmek için elinden gelen herşeyi yaptı. Üzülerek ama ümitle Festivalimizi bir daha hiç ertelememek üzere 2016 Mart ayına erteliyoruz. Hem de bu sefer her sene Festivalimizi yaptığımız Egyptian Theater’ı şimdiden ayırttık. Tarihlerimiz bile belli: 9-13 Mart 2016.

Büyük bir heyecanla bizleri takip eden kısa filmciler! Evet finalist filmlerimiz yaklaşık 60 gündür belli. Şimdilik Festival ekibimiz bütün enerjisin ülkemizin Oskar adayı Sivas filmi için harcıyor. Ne diyorlardı FINGERS CROSSED. Danışmanlarımıza, sponsorlarımıza ve değerli takipçilerimize anlayış ve destekleri için teşekkür ederiz.

Mart'ta görüşmek üzere...

Dear Friends,

Last year, we announced that our festival was scheduled to take place in November instead of March, which had been the recurring date of our previous festivals. We we were hoping to support Turkey’s Academy Award submissions more strongly by moving our festival date closer to the Academy Awards ceremony. However, the impending award season made it impossible for us to reserve prestigious screening venues for our shorts and feature film screenings. Although we had been fully supported by Turkish Consulate General in Los Angeles and the General Directorate of Cinema during this period of scheduling conflicts, we decided to change the festival date once again in order to preserve our standards of quality. LATFF team is saddened by this development since each and every member of our team did their best to overcome these challenges to have our festival in November. We sadly announce this delay, which we hope to be the last delay in LATFF’s future. We already made arrangements to reserve Egyptian Theater, our usual choice of venue, between March 9th and March 13th, 2016.

We are happy to inform short film directors, who have been waiting for the list of finalists, that we have the list for 60 days. We thank you all for your patience. You will be hearing from us soon. Also, we would like to thank our advisors, sponsors and followers for their continuous support. Now, our team will be devoting their energy to support Sivas, Turkey’s submission to this year’s Academy Awards competition. As they say, let’s keep our fingers crossed.

See You in March..

- An intriguing portrait, not only of a pliable personality, but also the hypocrisy inherent in abusive relationships, where cruelty is rationalized by a sense of helpless, self-entitled victimization.
