Helix Collective‘s Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival features short films with original scores performed live-to-picture by Helix Collective.
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. Awards for Best Picture and Best Musical Score are presented at the close of the festival.
Los Angeles Live Score Film Festival films have garnered Best Score wins at the L.A. Cinefest, IMDB Independent Short Awards, the Under 5 Minute Film Festival in Toronto, and screened at several additional festivals including the Los Angeles Outfest.
Now in it’s sixth season, LALSFF’s goal is to highlight the role of collaboration between composers and filmmakers. Acting like a talent agent, the festival brings experts in the two disciplines together. At the screenings, filmmakers and composers hear and see the work of new colleagues, meet new collaborators, and establish working relationships with each other. Additionally, Helix Collective proves that it is possible to get talented, experienced film musicians to play and record for independent films!
