Dead Man's Burden Screening at Los Angeles Film Festival!


As usual, Filmmakers Alliance is hosting a screening at the fest and we would love to see as many of you there as possible. Here's the details:

Dead Man’s Burden

USA | DIR Jared Moshé

Featuring: Barlow Jacobs, Clare Bowen, David Call, Joseph Lyle Taylor, Richard Riehle

Opening with a startling act of violence, this tense, classically crafted indie Western takes place in the aftermath of the Civil War on a hardscrabble homestead in New Mexico where the McCurry clan has been struggling to survive. Martha McCurry sees salvation in selling the family farm, against the wishes of her father. With the patriarch’s death, she seizes her opportunity, but her plans are upset by the unexpected return of her brother Wade, a defector to the Union Army long thought dead. Jared Moshé’s impressive first feature depicts a family in the lethal grip of its own civil war.

First Mondays at Red Lion Tavern ROCKED!!



Our second First Mondays rocked every bit as hard as the first one - but with many new, interesting faces! Thanks to the dozens who turned out and helped create such an awesome night!

For those of you who don’t know, FIRST MONDAYS is the regular “hang” we started in Los Angeles with FA members and a bunch of other interesting filmmaking peeps we know. We'll be doing it the first Monday of every month somewhere in LA. Usually a bar, but sometimes a museum, art gallery, a library, somebody's house, etc. The idea is to continually bring together the most interesting and/or creative people we stumble across. And as we all well know, that certainly is not necessarily filmmakers. But that's where we're starting. Feel free, however, to bring whomever - hopefully, the most INTERESTING person or persons you know.

And no need to fear, this is a hang, NOT a networking event. No agendas allowed.

See you all July 2nd!!
