Look to the skies! The flying saucers will always be there! Not even your local cinematheque is safe when evil extraterrestrials & suave spacemen invade Santa Monica. Should our valiant heroes survive these "Far Out" encounters, they must still contend with a Martian militia, led by none other than our governor himself! I heard it through my magick Tesla Coil!

From France, they say? Instead of our leader, take them to the seedy underbelly of noir français avec LACMA's excellent French Crime Wave series. That'll send them back to their rockets with tails tucked between their legs! And if not, they've got great taste - the perfect companions for Daytime Drinking. Ask Francis Ford Coppola for some wine recommendations.

Full list appears below. Check back tomorrow for our full guide to the Los Angeles Film Festival
