Just a note to report we've got another really interesting batch of films from filmmakers worldwide. Over the past nine years we've had festival screenings at the Egyptian theater in Hollywood, at AFI and other venues around the southland. A number of our festival winners have gone on to acclaim, and the filmmakers making feature films in the traditional method.
The film "Catfish" is an excellent DIY film, was celebrated at Sundance, but in our festival we honored "When I Die" a Jason Zink/Alex Luken's documentary about the suicide of a film student - and only at the end do we get a chance to see whether it's a documentary or not. Looking forward to our festival awards which are in Feb. (or March), where filmmakers that can make it in get a chance to share their work with industry professionals. Looking forward to seeing you there!
