OCTOBER 1 – LOS ANGELES PREMIERE!
Basurero is part of the 36th Los Angeles Pacific Film Festival (online).
Basurero will be available online on 10/1-31.
Counting down! It’s a dream come true to be premiering at LAPFF. I have been attending this prolific festival produced by Visual Communications in Hollywood for years. VC has been one of the great supporters in the US for Asian American and Pacific Islander Filmmakers. Their perseverance and vision are fierce! The largest festival of its kind in Southern California.
LAAPFF is also a proud Academy Award®-qualifying film festival for the Short Film Awards.
Thank you VC and LAAPFF for always shining the light!
