The SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Los Angeles Short Film Showcase is a cinematic celebration of new projects designed to encourage performers to create their own short films and web series.
Held twice a year, in April and August at our Los Angeles Screening Room, the showcase not only features a shorts program, but includes a Q&A and reception with the films’ directors, producers and actors present at the screening.

Virgin Territory is a sex-positive, queer, and questioning coming-of-age story about a teenage girl who commences her journey of sexual exploration through intercourse with an absolutely irrelevant boy.
