Q&A with MYSTERY SKULLS, Awards Presentation
Rounding out a day focused on filmmakers, we welcome a musician to the stage: Luis Dubuc of LA's own MYSTERY SKULLS. Luis will screen his video "PARALYZED" and lead a Q&A on the creative process with the video's director, Bo Mirosseni. (If we're lucky, we might even get a sneak peek premiere of his latest project. Fingers crossed.)
