Arianna Lemus, rising LA actress, creates film festival to help others

Growing up, Lemus was a big fan of early 2000s sitcoms on Disney Channel and Nickelodeon. She enjoyed watching actresses like Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, and Miley Cyrus and wanted to be an actress like them. Lemus envisioned herself as an actress in films and television shows, but she could not pursue her ambitions due to her parent’s divorce and her responsibilities as the oldest sibling. Now, in 2023, Lemus is releasing her first short film, “Red Flags,” written and produced by her and her production company, MiraLA, and presented at Lemus’ own film festival.
