The Los Angeles Music Video Festival (LAMVF) will take place Wednesday, May 1st - Saturday, May 4th at the Downtown Independent Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Entering our third year, LAMVF strives to be the premier music video festival showcasing amazing, bleeding-edge work from a new generation of musicians and filmmakers. Tickets are on sale now at www.lamvf.com.

The longest LAMVF to date, this year’s 4-night program includes six screenings curated from over 400 submissions from 32 countries, dynamic panels, keynote & lifetime achievement winner Greg Gold (director and co-founder of Propaganda Films).  LAMVF will host it’s signature “Life’s A Pitch” fast-pitch contest with Red Bull Records’ band, Five Knives, this year with an added twist requiring the winning director to create his or her music video in 48 hours. A portion of all LAMVF proceeds will benefit OMG! Cameras Everywhere! a non-profit arts program that introduces LA-area kids to the art of music video making.

The LAMVF was created for a single purpose: to celebrate the art of the music video.  For anyone who makes music, makes videos, likes music videos, come be part of the movement. Visit www.lamvf.com for more details.
