3-D SPACE is pleased to announce the dates for the 12th Annual LA 3-D Movie Festival, to be held on Saturday December 12th and Sunday, December 13th, 2015, at the Downtown Independent Theater. The festival will showcase a selection of new international 3-D shorts in competition, 3-D feature films, special presentations, the 56th Hollywood International Exhibition of Stereo Photography. Top award winning entries will receive prizes and the coveted LA 3-D Movie Festival ‘Ro-Man’ trophies.
This year’s festival marks the 12th time that 3-D SPACE and the LA 3-D Club have brought the best new independent and rare historical 3-D motion pictures to audiences in Los Angeles. The group held their first competitive festival of 3-D short films in March 1997, and subsequent festivals were held over the next decade. The LA 3-D Movie Festival became an annual event in May 2009, when the 7th version of the fest found it’s home at the Downtown Independent theater. Throughout the year, the organization presents regular monthly curated 3-D screenings, presentations and events, culminating with the LA 3-D Movie Festival, now held every December.
Festival passes will be available in early December, when the complete festival program will be announced. Individual tickets will also go on sale in early December. All festival events will be held at the Downtown Independent Theater, 251 S. Main Street, Los Angeles, CA, 90012.
