Starting this Thursday May 3rd, our little bohemian neighborhood that could, Silver Lake, will be holding its nine day long, 7th annual Silver Lake Film Festival, complete with indie movies, indie music, and even indie darling Parker Posey accepting the “Spirit of Silver Lake” award. Right in the shadow of the bright lights, doctored scripts and smarmy agents of Hollywood, SLFF, dares the big studios to F with them.

2007’s SLFF kicks off tomorrow night with a screening of Fay Grim starring Posey at 7:30 at Barnsdall with an awards ceremony to honor the film's director Hal Hartley to follow. Simultaneously, at EchoPlex, The Slog Movie will be screened followed by Music Fests performances by Circle Jerks and 400 Blows. Venues for the film showings are peppered throughout the lovely neighborhood, from King King and the EchoPlex, to The Jensen Recreation Center and even MusicPlusTV’s studios. After parties and concerts accompany most of the screenings - the most anticipated one coming up this Friday May 4th at EchoPlex featuring Seawolf, Dengue Fever, The Bird and the Bee, and The Little Ones. Other festival programming includes Sustainable LA, Music Fest, Fringe Fest, Indian Film, Conspiracy Theory, and Artrotica.

Tickets are available online, and to check out the full schedule of events and screenings go here.
