Actor, martial artist and filmmaker Ramin Sohrab has been busy setting up shop for a while now in Los Angeles following the production and completion of his feature directing debut, Layers Of Lies. That film currently stands to see some circulation in 2023 with updates pending, with Sohrab biding his time with filming gigs and hosting training, action seminars and, as of late, an Action Short Film Premiere which kicks off on the evening of January 30.
Entries are still open for the event which will also include Q&A segments with the filmmakers, whose projects are now listed in the present line-up following the announcement below. Sohrab is shepherding the event along with pro-poker player Dan Cates and, yours truly, Film Combat Syndicate as sponsors. Check the announcement and line-up below and get your tickets over at the Eventbrite page.

Event collaborators and sponsors Ramin Sohrab, Dan Cates, and Film Combat Syndicate
As someone who has always been fascinated by the world of action films and the art of storytelling, I have long been drawn to the action genre. The combination of heart-pumping action, suspense, and drama is truly captivating and has the power to transport us to a different world.
However, I have noticed that many action filmmakers struggle to get their works shown on the big screen, and it is a shame that so many talented and passionate filmmakers are not getting the recognition they deserve.
That’s why I am so excited to organize this event. I believe that providing a platform for these filmmakers to showcase their work is not only an opportunity for them to gain recognition, but it also allows audiences to experience the thrill of action filmmaking and be inspired by the creativity of these filmmakers.
Moreover, the event will be enriched by a Q&A session with the filmmakers and a short seminar led by Ramin Sohrab, where the filmmakers could share their insights and experience with the attendees, and also the attendees will learn how to make their own action short films.
I am honored to have the support of Dan Cates and Film Combat Syndicate as a collaborator for this event and I am looking forward to the opportunity to create more events like this in the future.
I hope you will be able to join us for this exciting event and experience the thrill of the newest action-packed short films.
