Los Angeles Filmforum was incorporated in 1975 to promote a greater understanding of film as an art form, and the filmmaker as an artist by providing a forum for independently produced, experimental films, which had little opportunity of reaching the general public through normal channels of commercial distribution.

Presenting approximately 45 screenings annually, Filmforum is currently the only venue in Southern California dedicated exclusively to the ongoing, non-commercial exhibitionof independent, experimental, and progressive cinema.

Programming over the last few years has included eclectic series of historical and contemporary work, with many in-person presentations by local and visiting artists.  Recent accomplishments include several shows introduced by David James in conjunction with his important book ‘The Most Typical Avant-Garde: Geography and History of Minor Cinemas in Los Angeles’; a tribute to the late artist Nam June Paik, held at LACMA and co-presented with the Korean Cultural Center; and three nights of the documentary work of world-renowned Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski.

In 2008, Filmforum received a grant from the Getty Foundation as part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: Art in LA 1945-1980 initiative for Alternative Projections.
