Now in it’s 18th year, the LA Film Festival will screen nearly 200 films, shorts, and music videos as it returns to L.A. Live in downtown from June 14th through June 24th. This event has so many things going on within the two weeks that we can’t mention them all, but the main focus will be screenings of the best entries from the thousands of emerging independent filmmakers who submitted their work. Awards will be presented to filmmakers in various categories including Best Narrative Feature, Best Documentary Feature, and Best Short Film, just to name a few. In addition to the competition, the event will feature an international showcase and summer showcase which highlight some of the most innovative and talked-about independent film releases. Coffee Talks & Conversations is a series of panels which allow attendees and emerging filmmakers a chance to connect and discuss various issues with industry insiders. Free community screenings of Dirty Dancing, E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial, and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan are also part of this huge event. Screenings are located at L.A. Live, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Grammy Museum, Grand Performances, and FIGat7th Plaza, so be sure to check the schedule for a full list of films, tickets, and more!
