LA Underground Film Forum (LAUFF) is Los Angeles’s premier showcase of experimentation in film, video and audio based mediums. It focus on avant-garde, art-house, independent and no/low budget filmmaking. Our program provides a venue for filmmakers to reinvent and explore new approaches, to foster new forms of media art and to build an audience for such work. We aim to present a wide range of work exploring the many definitions and interpretations of the concept of “underground”.

Mission: Showcasing Experimental / Underground Cinema.

Such a fantastic delight having "Bicycle Man" director Lady Beaver join us for a Q+A! For her catchy songwriting and very hip music video to be an outcome of heartbreak, is a testament to Lady Beaver's creativity and a reminder to us that the most powerful and meaningful art comes from transcending ourselves. Thank you Lady Beaver for also doing a live rendition on stage! It was beautiful and also great to see one of the audience humming her song during intermission.

Hey Filmmakers and Audience, I recently went to a prescreening for a great Independent Horror film called A Demon Within. Writer and director Ayush Banker and Justin LaReau explore new approaches of media art through their experimental video based mediums. I noticed a handful of unique action shots and appealing lighting techniques I haven’t seen before. This underground film about a small-town doctor who has to face his painful past in order to save the life of a possessed teenage girl is premiering this Friday (January 12th) at the Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills.
Dear friends: All the members who participated in the BLACK QUIXOTES production were overwhelmed with huge emotion about every prize that the generous jury granted us in the LA UNDERGROUND FILM FORUM. We feel very motivated to continue in this journey with more resolution than before. Warmly, Sandino Burbano DIRECTOR BLACK QUIXOTES
I am super happy and honored that my short film Belgiac received an honorable mention from Los Angeles Underground Film Forum. As an artist who's vision is not in line with the mainstream perception of what cinema should 'look like', I am ecstatic to see that Los Angeles Underground Film Forum shares the same point of view. Check out their program and submerge yourself in cinema that is different, daring and dazzling, just like the bear with the shades.
