Dances With Films - The Last Independent Independent Film Festival - Lauches Its 10th Year!

  Last night I attended the DANCES WITH FILMS "Meet the Filmmakers" cocktail party at The Standard in West Hollywood. The film festival is celebrating their 10th year. The founders, Leslee Scallon & Michael Trent are I'm sure the reason this festival has beaten the odds in a town where having a celebrity in your film is the only way to get attention. This festival prides itself on being dedicated to truly independent films and the people behind them. The mood was ...

Michael Bay Interview: Transformers (by Robin Rowe)

user
I thought this was a particularly good interview with Michael Bay and since Transformers premiered at the LA Film Festival, I wanted to include this interview in this blog.  Robin Rowe, a Los Angeles screenwriter and facilitator of weekly filmmaker events, asks Bay practical questions that I think a lot of filmmakers will appreciate.  Enjoy!  (Contact information for Robin is at the bottom of this email.) Michael Bay Interview: Transformersby Robin Rowe [More articles] Read Robin's Sci-...

Screening of SUNSHINE and Closing Night Gala

Wow...what an amazing festival. I'm a little bummed it's over but then my overflowing laundry basket reminds me that it's time to resume normal life. :-) I had a great time and I just can't stop talking about the LA Film Festival staff and volunteers. They are the greatest group of people ever. It would be an honor for me to screen my film at this festival. As a matter of fact, that's all I could think about the entire week! And every filmmaker I met told me that this ...

LA FILM FESTIVAL: Transformers Premiere! 6/27/07

WOW!  The Transformers preimere and block party last night at the LA Film Festival was OFF THE HOOK!  What an event.  The movie premiered in 5 theatres.  It was a little chaotic down there but with a "life-sized" Bubblebee guarding the "red" (it was blue) carpet, it was allll good!  This was my second time seeing this movie and I have to tell you, I loved it the second time just as much as I loved it the first time!  The crowd reaction is priceless.  People cheer and c...

LA Film Festival: Centerpiece Screening of Joshua at the National

  So as it totally happens during the festival... sometimes you have to not go to one event or screening to go to another, secretly hoping you picked the "right" one. Well, I had the choice to either go to a open bar cocktail reception with Women in Film at The Forum or to see the Centerpiece Screening of Joshua at the National. I chose the screening, and here's why: I wanted to make sure that in all the hoopla that I see FILMS! It gets tempting to jump from one open bar...

My favorite star sighting of all time... Transformers!!

 When I came around the corner at lunch today and saw the Transformers trucks parked around the fountain, I literally felt like I was seeing Madonna, Elvis, James Dean and Marilyn Monroe!!  LOL  I went back and got my camera!  I also took some video which will be uploaded soon. I am so amazed how they could make this big, blockbuster movie with out of this world effects (and I mean OUT OF THIS WORLD) and still create CHARACTERS that I developed strong feelings for!  I mean, I feel like I *...

The Festival Atmosphere

Yesterday I had tickets to two films: BILLY THE KID and PRISON TOWN, USA. I went to the festival site a little early because I had an interview lined up with BILLY THE KID director, Jennifer Venditti. (She is amazing by the way!) This was my first time back at this particular area since the opening night screening and gala and again I was so impressed with how clearly the signs were for parking! And the entire festival location atmosphere is just so wonderful! I took a bunch of pics so you...

Jordan was and she sent in this:Firstly, it was held in the newly opened (only three weeks old) Landmark Theatres at Pico and Westwood, which significantly elevates the theatre going experience for indie audiences.  It looks good, it feels good, and there's a cool bar where we were hosted to tasty hor d'oeuvres and drinks by American Express during the lunch break and after conference reception.Secondly, given the chan...

Film Independent's Diversity Expo - 6/22/07

Last night I attended Film Independent's Diversity Expo at the Hammer Museum. It was a well-attended event! It was great to walk around and look at all the different companies representing the diverse landscape that is independent film.

If last night is any indication of what is to come for me over the next 10 days, I am VERY excited! This is my first time at the LA Film Festival and I have to say, this festival is top notch!                   I came straight from work (in Hollywood) to the first night of the festival. There were very clear signs for parking and friendly staff guiding the cars. (They had me at "clear signs&...
