Inaugural Frieze Los Angeles Film Award Los Angeles
Inaugural Frieze Los Angeles Film Award bagged by Silvia Lara.
Silvia Lara, who is in the front row of up and coming filmmakers, has bagged the first Deutsche Bank Frieze Los Angeles Film Award on Thursday at the opening of Frieze LA. She defeated nine finalists to win a cash prize of $10,000. The award was granted in collaboration with the non-profit Ghetto Film School.
The motive of the awards is to recognize the filmmakers who are based in Los Angeles and are aged between 20 to 34 years of age. The award is a part of the second annual Frieze Los Angeles art exhibit. The exhibit takes works from over 70 galleries around the world and is held in Paramount Studios.
Beauty Never Lost, the movie made by Lara, was created during a three-month program she attended at Ghetto Film School. The film captures the life and inhabitants of Whittier in California. A series of vignettes are used to capture the experiences.
