Dirty Looks, a New York-based platform for queer experimental film and video, is returning to the West Coast for a second tour. While in Los Angeles, the organization will premiere never-before-seen work by Tom Rubnitz, which was discovered in the Video Data Bank archives at the Billy Wilder Theater. In association with LA FilmForum, they've also organized a program of contemporary queer portraits called Yesterday Once More, which will feature works by emerging artists made within the last two years.

In 1973, artist Judy Chicago, graphic designer Sheila Levrant de Bretteville and art historian Arlene Raven founded The Woman’s Building in Los Angeles, one of the feminist art movement’s major centers of activity in the 1970’s. Out of this hotbed of innovation emerged the L.A. Women's Video Center (LAWVC), which was cofounded at the Woman’s Building in 1976 by Annette Hunt, Nancy Angelo, and Candace Compton. Jerri Allyn joined the Center the following year.
We are very fortunate to live in a city that is home to some of the finest film preservation and screening organizations in the country. This month, two of these local film institutions, the UCLA Film & Television Archive and Los Angeles Filmforum, in cooperation with NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, present a program called Celebrating Orphan Films, an eclectic mix of screenings and discussions at the Billy Wilder Theater.
If you enjoy going to the movies but want something other than the typical Hollywood fare, this is an event for you. Los Angeles Filmforum presents a selection of independent films from the 48th Ann Arbor Film Festival in 2010.
The program will include two films by local filmmakers Alexandra Cuesta and Laida Lertxundi. Both plan to attend.
