Held twice yearly, in April and October, the USC First Look Film Festival offers entertainment execs, agents and managers a chance to preview the work of the next generation of USC filmmakers and animators, while at the same time providing a much-needed outlet for new creative visions. Fifty-one films spanning a wide range of genres will be included as part of April’s weeklong program, held between the DGA Theater on Sunset Boulevard and Frank Sinatra Hall, which is located in the Eileen Norris Theatre Complex on the USC campus. All screenings are free to the public. For screening times, reservations and directions, call (213) 740-1153.
