The LA Indie Film Festival began in 2007 as the partner festival to the well established LA Comedy Film Festival. The event is a part of the Los Angeles Film Festivals – a creative hub for LA's top independent film festivals.
Off-Season tells a story about fourteen-year-old Adam, who lives in a holiday resort by the sea, that is run by his parents. When a mysterious, mature Woman arrives to the resort, Adam becomes immediately captivated by her. Spying on her slowly turns into an obsession, which makes him explore his sexuality. While trying to grow up, Adam rebels against his parents who still perceive him as a small child. The movie touches on the subjects of coming-of-age, love, but also family and its disintegration while facing non-easy actions.
