Seeking Volunteers and Interns for the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival June 1-9, 2016

VOLUNTEERS Volunteers are undoubtedly the foundation of the LA Film Festival. With over 200 screenings and events held over 9 days, the Festival would not be able to function without Volunteers holding a variety of pivotal roles. Not only do Volunteers work behind the scenes, they are also at the forefront of the Festival, ensuring that our filmmakers and guests have a truly enjoyable experience. Whether it’s working in theater operations, answering ticketing questions or setting up Q&am...

LAFF 2011 Winners, But Also-Rans Were Great Too & Katie Holmes

By Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles CorrespondentEXTRA: Yes, Katie Holmes did show up to raves (without Tom Cruise in tow or Suri) for Closing night of 2011 LAFF. She looked great, ps. What might be best remembered from the 2011 Los Angeles Film Festival is the endearing pairing of Shirley MacLaine and Jack Black in a lovefest on their panel, but then again, Ryan Gosling breaking the screaming hot barrier in Nicolas Winding Refn's DRIVE also stands out. Then there is John C. Reilly's new mov...

LAFF: Quincy Jones, Andy Garcia & More Honor Sidney Lumet (1924 - 2011)

By Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   That Sidney Lumet acted when he was a child is not surprising, but that his gut-driven hard-nose for stories included giving a first job in scoring to someone like Quincy Jones who given up on film music, is surprising. Lumet's off-camera gift was that he could recognize someone's talent often before they knew it themselves. During LAFF's "Remembering Sidney Lumet" tribute hosted by Los Angeles Times' film guru K...

LAFF: Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner Show Up for A BETTER LIFE

By Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Last night two of the biggest stars from the TWILIGHT franchise, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, made a surprise appearance on the red carpet for the world premiere of Summit Entertainment's A BETTER LIFE at Los Angeles Film Festival.    Half the folks crowded outside were probably there just for TWILIGHT reasons, but this won't bother the director of A BETTER LIFE, Chris Weitz, since he helmed NEW MOON. Both Kristen and Taylor...

LAFF: Diablo Cody Debunks Her Myth & Dustin Lance Black Dishes Eastwood

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   Diablo Cody summed up being a female screenwriter in Hollywood at yesterday's LAFF Screenwriter Panel in two sentences. Ready? "If someone (in the press) says 'your legs are fat,' it's not going to help you write. That kind of criticism, that's what happens when you're a lady." She was on a panel with Josh Olson (HISTORY OF VIOLENCE), Dustin Lance Black (MILK) and the co-writers of CAPTAIN AMERICA, Chris ...


by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   Later on, we'll carry an exclusive interview with THE HANGOVER's Rachel Harris who jumps off the screen into a new "Leading Lady" phase in her career in NATURAL SELECTION.  But right now this movie, director Robbie Pickering's autobiographical valentine to his mother, demands some attention.  Invoking Darwin in the title, NATURAL SELECTION presents a universe where a "Lady" who does everything rig...

LAFF: Ryan Gosling's DRIVE, DRIVE, DRIVE & Nicolas Winding Refn

By Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   OMG. Can Ryan Gosling do anything wrong on screen? DAY 2 at LAFF, his movie DRIVE, directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, unspooled to a packed house, almost SRO (standing room only) with a crush of fans waiting to see the power house Canadian-born actor and cast.  New star Carey Mulligan, Christina Hendricks (AMC's "Mad Man"), Albert Brooks, Ron Perlman, Bryan Cranston, and Oscar Issac were there in support of the ultra-vio...

LA Film Fest: Moving at the Speed of Media & BERNIE & LEAVE IT ON THE FLOOR

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent   Already the Los Angeles Film Festival, now 17 years old, is acting like a teenager. First, last night they opened BERNIE, the much-anticipated Jack Black-Shirley MacLaine starrer by Richard Linklater so fast that anybody who made it from the parking structure in time felt lucky. PS, There's a dead guy in it. Then, they are calling it a "Festival Village," like some Olympians may wander in confused, drawn in by universally fam...

Gearing Up for Round Three

The calendar has turned from 2010 to 2011 (and from January to February, I just noticed. When the hell did that happen?). We here at the Lancaster Area Film Festival are hard at work getting ready to program the third edition of our fest celebrating independent film in Lancaster. I doubt you can call it work, however, as we are watching the films submitted to the festival. This is by far our favorite part (after all, how else can we get away with watching movies all day?). And...

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...
