The L.A. Live Score Film Festival is an annual event that aims to pair short films with original music scores, which are performed live during screenings by Helix Collective, which presents the fest with the Academy of Scoring Arts. This year, Ion Legarda’s film about free-diving, A Deep Breath, is matched with music by Cali Wang. Director Vaibhav Arora’s Enigma (which involves a man “suffering from the illusion that he transcends space and time”) is soundtracked by composer Philip Timofeyev.

Other directors include Meaghan Hellmers, Marco Martínez, Devaughn Hooper, Jonathan Samukange and Vionna Lam, with music by such composers as Lasse Elkjaer, Sergei Stern, and Isabelle Engman & Gerardo Garcia Jr.
