A new Los Angeles film festival featuring independent films, documentaries and artist talks is set for April 4-7 at venues in Chinatown, Eagle Rock and Filipinotown.

The Los Angeles Festival of Movies was launched by Micah Gottlieb and Sarah Winshall, and will open April 4 with Jane Schoenbrun’s “I Saw the TV Glow.” Closing night film is Conner O’Malley and Danny Scharar’s “Rap World” on April 7. Both films screen at Vidiots.

Screenings will be spread between Vidiots in Eagle Rock, 2220 Arts + Archives in Historic Filipinotown and Now Instant Image Hall in Chinatown.

An artist’s talk will feature musician and artist Kim Gordon and writer Rachel Kushner in conversation about their relationships to the city and cinema of Los Angeles.

The city’s last festival focused on independent films, the L.A. Independent Film Festival, closed in 2018. For several years, Sundance hosted an L.A. screening series, which hasn’t been active in recent years.
