Event Description


We've put together a fun, fresh and fierce program for you this January for our Official Selection series so don't miss out! 

We'll be celebrating the L.A. premiere and digital launch party for New Low, a charming and edgy romantic comedy that premiered at Sundance 2010's discovery-mine section, Next. Through the partnership with Sundance Artists Services, New Low will become available on iTunes, AmazonVOD and YouTube starting January 17.

Preceding the feature, we are super excited to be able to highlight three fresh young directing talents' debut and offer a sneak peak of Sundance 2012 short film competition, The Arm written and directed by Brie Larson, Sarah Ramos and Jessie Ennis.

New Low written and directed by Adam Bowers (82 min)
Log:A neurotic twentysomething struggles to figure out which girl he really belongs with: the best or the worst one he's ever known.

Preceded by The Arm (9min) written and directed by Jessie Ennis, Brie Larson and Sarah Ramos.
Log: To keep up with social pressure in a technologically advanced world, Chance starts a texting relationship with Genevievea girl he meets at a yogurt shop. But tragedy forces Chance to realize that he was never in a relationship at all.

Doors open at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. Following the film and Q&A stay to party with us and the filmmakers. Dance tunes provided by JAX-A-TAX 

The Arm

Cast: Miles Heizer, Jessica Hecht , Allie Grant, Logan Miller, John Ennis

Cast: Adam Bowers, Jayme Ratzer, Valerie Jones, & Toby Turner

The worst thing about Wendell isn't his slightly balding head, skinny frame, or thin lips; it's that he's a bit of an idiot. He just started dating Vicky, an angry drunk, who conveniently shares his lack of ambition and cleanliness. But he might prefer a relationship with Joanna because she's a selfless social worker who doesn't have lip acne. Eventually, Wendell is going to have to decide who he really belongs with: the best girl he's ever known—or the worst.

Twenty-five-year-old Adam Bowers writes, directs, and stars in this deadpan comedic love triangle for questionable romantics, which was shot on borrowed equipment by whichever one of his friends was available that day. This sharply scripted debut feature out of Gainesville, Florida, charms with Bowers's natural comedic timing and endless supply of one-liners while questioning not only who we should spend our life with but who we truly are under all our neuroses.
