[LA Magazine’s] GetL.A. contest invites readers to show the world—via a three-minute video—what it’s like to live in our city. In partnership with the nonprofit volunteer action group L.A. Works, the magazine is sponsoring this online short film competition to start a citywide dialogue. The public will vote for an “Audience Favorite,” and a panel of notable Angelenos will choose the “Official Selection.”
It took multiple screenings, four bags of popcorn, a gallon of root beer and some heated debate, but we did it: We narrowed down the smart, funny, thoughtful and thought-provoking Get L.A. submissions we received in our first-ever short-film competition to these eight finalists.
Watch them here, then vote for your favorite between now and 11:59:59 p.m. on April 1. The finalist with the most votes will be named Get LA’s “Audience Selection.”
