Set in an airless loft amidst bustling New York, four young adults have led a life sealed off from the rest of the city. But when they realize that someone has been watching them, they set out into the streets to kidnap this faceless man and protect their utopia. As the outside world creeps in, they are forced to see their makeshift family for what it is: a house of cards built on fear, loneliness and a shared sense of loss. OTHER PEOPLE is ultimately about the family we choose and what happens when they turn out to be the wrong choice.

The LA INDIE Film Festival is the partner festival to the well established LA COMEDY Festival, www.LAComedyFest.com. Over the years we have had the privilege to work with hundreds of filmmakers who have told wonderfully funny stories. Many have gone on to make great films in other genres.
This made us think how wonderful it would be to showcase all the terrific stories that are being told in film, in all the different, creative ways in which they are being told.
We are very excited to present the 5th LA INDIE Film Festival.
