Los Angeles Film School is hosting the Evolution International Film Festival

The upcoming Evolution International Film Festival will take place at the Los Angeles Film School from July 26-27. In it’s second year, EIFF is requiring filmmakers to dive headfirst into the most relevant and wide-reaching topic of our time: Revolution and Freedom.

With impassioned citizens from Egypt, Syria, and Brazil lobbying for the human rights and economic liberties promised to us in the United States, EIFF could not come at a more significant moment. With 23 films in 10 different languages, this festival hopes to change the way we view the international landscape. While the media most certainly highlights the atrocities of the on-going struggles for freedom, EIFF will engage its audience with the heart-wrenching, yet inspirational stories that would otherwise go untold. Los Angeles Film School, the alma mater of festival director Sandra Seeling, provides a top-notch film education to a diverse selection of students that hail from all over the world. Dedicated to globalization, the school welcomes a festival that also takes place in Mallorca, Cairo, and Egypt.
