This is the month we’ve all been waiting for. KitSplit is officially launched in Los Angeles and everyone is talking about it. Well, all the coolest people, at least. We’re planning all kinds of fun events and workshops to celebrate our arrival in Tinseltown and we’d love to hear your ideas for how we can make a positive impact here. Are you hosting an event in Los Angeles? We’d love to come by and talk about what we do! Email us at Contact@kitsplit.com

The KitSplit LA Launch Party!
Today, 11/03, 7pm, FREE

The time has come! We are celebrating our official launch in Los Angeles and you’re invited. There will be food, drink, and some really great swag for early arrivals. The party will be held on the historic patio at El Cid restaurant in Silver Lake. Make sure to RSVP, as this is a private event.

Latin American Film Festival
Friday, 11/17-19, FREE

Two full days of free films made by Latino filmmakers from across the Americas. Hosted by Cal State Northridge, all of the films in this festival have been selected to represent their respective countries for the 2018 Academy Awards. There’s a very good chance that this will be your only opportunity to see many of these films on the big screen in Los Angeles.

Monday, 11/27, 7pm, $25
