Awards of the first annual Downtown Film Festival

The first annual Downtown Film Festival – Los Angeles (DFFLA) concluded its final day on Sunday with “Sustainable L.A.,” an all-day, free-to-the-public program devoted to urban ecology in the heart of city’s Bunker Hill business district that included an organic farmer’s market, panel discussions about urban “green’ topics, and the screening of a variety of related documentary films.

The day-long activities continued into the evening with the Los Angeles premiere screening of “Flow,” a documentary feature by director Irena Salina, that details the precarious future of the world’s rapidly diminishing supply of safe fresh water. The film was screened on Grand Avenue with the famous Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall serving as a dramatic backdrop.
