It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce the cancellation of FMLY Fest Los Angeles, this December 28th and 29th. Months of planning, co-organizing, and working groups can only take us so far, as we strongly rely on our civic community to support the needs of our projects. Unfortunately, due to the autonomous and independent climate of Los Angeles’ arts communities, we could not find a safe space capable of hosting our festival. We believe it best to put our Los Angeles celebration on hold rather than to host an event in a location that does not challenge us or offer a positive ethic.
Though this decision has been deeply saddening we believe that rather than accept this loss as a failure, we should celebrate the reasons why this has happened through discussion and creation. Rather than present the FMLY Fest we had planned for Los Angeles we invite everyone to take part in FMLY Fest Phoenix December 27th and 28th, as well as various events we will share in the coming days.
We can’t wait to make magic with 2k14.
