"Hollywood studios aren't the only ones producing 3D movies. The LA 3-D Movie Festival showcases independent 3-D movies made by filmmakers from all over the world. These creative 3D filmmakers have developed their own solutions to produce stereoscopic motion pictures that frequently are more innovative than the work of the big studios." - Ray Zone, 3D Film Historian


Other festival highlights include the premiere screening of a 3D feature film, stereoscopic art installations, demonstrations of do-it-yourself 3D production, and a special presentation by Chuck Comisky, the 3D VFX supervisor for Avatar. All events will be held at the Downtown Independent Theater, 251 S. Main street, Los Angeles, CA, 90012. For the complete schedule and online ticket sales, visit the festival website.
