The Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival is presented by Helix Collective and SAGindie featuring short films from their Film Music Connect program and from the Los Angeles Film School.
Selected film composers are paired with a winning filmmaker to create an original score for the festival. The film is screened with the score performed live by the renowned performance and recording ensemble, Helix Collective. The screening includes an interview with the filmmakers and composers. The audience votes for Best Picture and Best Musical Score and the awards are presented at the close of the festival.
This concert is made possible in part by a grant from the L.A. County Department of Arts and Culture. Helix Collective’s 2023 season signature sponsor is Orange Tree Samples and our season sponsor is ASCAP. Our signature concert sponsor is the Los Angeles Film School.
Tickets Available in late Spring.

About Helix Collective
Helix Collective founded and produces the Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival.
Helix Collective are classical musicians busting out of the traditional mold. From crossover dance music, to storytelling, to film, television, and video game music, the Los Angeles-based ensemble takes the best of classical chamber music and makes it the life of the party.
Variety Magazine praised Helix Collective’s musical range moving from “moody urgency and edgy chamber-music sound” to the “sweetly romantic evoking wide-open spaces.”
Helix “has a little something for everyone: those who like their classics straight up, with a contemporary edge to it, or with populist appeal.” Called “dizzyingly virtuosic with exquisite musicianship and world-class range” by The Free Times and praised for “beyond-the-ordinary programming.”
Like the double helix, the ensemble is rearrangeable, flexible, and fuses the DNA of classical music into worlds where it’s never gone before.
