Previous 13th Floor Art Collective showcases have welcomed the talents of the grunge-punk band Skulrot, hip-hop group Sacred Circuitry, and synthpop duo Future Holotape. In hosting cinema night at Win Within Sangha, cinematic curator Arthur McDee [Photographer, Videographer, & Pro-audio] shifts the collective’s attention from auditory pleasure to visual stimulating spectacles, featuring a series of short films created by local cinematographers, followed by a panel discussion and live music. The 13th Floor Art Collective curates memorable experiences, assembling eclectic blends of artisans such as painters, live performers, and craftspeople; from cigar box portraits to set designers.
A word about Win Within Sangha: 2015 marks in its second year of operation, the events held in the historical south-of-downtown Los Angeles building have become a destination for Angelinos looking for conscious community events, and stellar showcases; attracting folks with intersecting interests in technology, health & the arts. Community outreach projects include Broadchester Farm, whose aim is to create “a better living environment through community gardening, education & service,” as well as resources such as Win Within Sangha’s own, Sangha Light & Sound, which “provides production resources for the conscious community.”
Cinema Night at Win Within Sangha is yet another collaboration project between the two collectives. The previous collaboration was a focus group, beta test for the Let’s Seed Bomb LA bicycle night. The project included invited guests from both collective, and concluded with a neighborhood bicycle ride.
Submissions for consideration for February’s cinema night are closed at this time, however, as an open-sourced art collective, the 13th Floor encourages others to create their own art, and even submit their own short films. New and veteran film film makers in the genres of documentaries, music videos, animation, experimental, action, and more are welcome to join the collective which advocates for the support of “conscious consumerism.” The next Sangha Cinema Night will take place February 15, 2015, welcoming cinematographers and cinephiles alike
