ABOUT THE FESTIVAL ORGANIZERS
The LA 3-D Club (Stereo Club of Southern California) was established in
the Greater Los Angeles area in 1955 by a dedicated group of 3-D stereo
photographers to further the art and science of stereoscopic photography
and film. This is accomplished through monthly meetings which typically
include 3-D videos and slide projection programs, workshops, slide
competitions, field trips, discussions on 3-D ideas and techniques,
and many other 3-D related activities. For more info, visit
