LA Film Fest: Day 8
Though Westwood is now a smoking ruin, I am happy to announce that Optimus Prime and his heroic Autobots have defeated Megatron and his dastardly Decepticons. For those of you now whining "spoiler!"--come on. Does anyone really not know how Transformers is going to end? Don't worry. They left plenty of room for sequels. I just want to take this time to personally thank the programmers of the LA Film Festival for finding a space for this little gem in their schedule. But back to the festival proper.
After a two day break, Bands on Broxton returns to the festival today. It's still free and shows are at noon and 7:00 p.m. at the Festival Promenade. Today's Director Lunch Talk is with the exquisite Julie Delpy who'll be talking about her film at the LAFF, 2 Days in Paris. It starts at 12:30 p.m. at the Target Red Room. Julie returns at 7:00 p.m. for the Actors Who Call 'Cut' program at the W in Westwood. It explores the challenges actors face when they decide to step behind the camera. Adam Goldberg (I Love Your Work) and Vondie Curtis Hall (Glitter) are also scheduled to appear. F.X. Feeney from the LA Weekly moderates.
