Traveling to Los Angeles this spring? There are so many great things to do! Los Angeles is filled with the arts, including books, photography, and film. Month of Photography Los Angeles (MOPLA) features the Los Angeles community of commercial, fine art and photojournalism photographers and is one of the largest photography communities in the United States. MOPLA 2013’s theme, Wide Angle: Exploring New Photography from Los Angeles and Beyond, aims to showcase bodies of work that have been previously unseen or exhibited in Los Angeles. Make sure to catch MOPLA before it ends on April 27th!
For fans of film, from April 15th to 22nd, The Franco American Cultural Fund sponsors the City of Lights, City of Angels film event, which features more than 50 new French films. Some of the films premiering this year are “It Happened in Saint-Tropez,” “In the House,” and “Therese and Hidden Beauties.” May 2nd through May 12th, The Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival will feature Asian American and Asian international filmmakers’ feature-length and short films. The Director’s Guild of America (DGA), CGV Cinemas located in Koreatown, the Tateuchi Democracy Forum at NCPD in Little Tokyo, and the historic Art Theatre of Long Beach showcase 33 feature films and 108 shorts throughout the 10 day festival.
