Home Based Official Selections Film Review
The theme for the narrative content at Lift-Off has always been loosely connected to the idea that people rule drama. Emotions and the connections we make as we live our lives. On the front inside cover of this years Los Angeles Lift-Off we decided to set the mood by giving the urban dictionary’s definition to the word “Sonder”, as we felt that this really gave the audience member the best possible introduction to what it is we, as programmers, wanted to release with our selected screenings.
