Alternative cinema

reset

Your movie-going does not always (key word: always)  have to consist of your sweatpants, a half-drunk bottle (yeah, all right, a bottle) of wine, and a mediocre Netflix film you've selected out of pure desperation.

Experimental film initiative Cinema Reset -- an organiztaion  concentrated on film-initiatives that open up various portals of creative dialogue -- hosts two don't-miss events early next week. Monday, Cinema Reset invites filmmakers -- experienced and amateur -- to show their work at Indywood (630 Elysian Fields), a new downtown art-house theater open to the public.

Then on Tuesday, for all the animation nerds out there, Cinema Reset will bring Experimental Film and Animation from Los Angeles to the Zeitgeist in"Burning Bungalows," a program of short works." And if that isn't quite enough reason to swing by, several Angelenos filmmakers should be stopping by.
