Hollywood Festival is a partner of and has benefited from a large support and contribution to this increase in films submissions from all over the world.

"This year's Hollywood Film Festival continues its tradition of honoring
the very best talent within our community. It is a celebration of all
aspects of Hollywood filmmaking and the artists who help to create its
lasting legacy on our culture," festival co-chair Paula Wagner said.

As per its mandate, bridging the gap between Hollywood and the global creative community, this year's festival will focus on celebrating both World and European Cinema by bestowing the "Hollywood World Awards" and "Hollywood European Awards" during the prestigious Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday, October 18.

Festival" showcase of horror films in alliance with Film Threat, which will
include a presentation of the "Hollywood Horror Film Award" to filmmaker Don

The festival's program includes films from Australia, Belgium, Canada,
Denmark, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Romania, Russia, South Africa,
Sweden, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States among other countries.

"The films that were selected for the festival are truly outstanding and showcase a wide array of talented filmmakers," commented Mr. de Abreu. "This year's line-upwill present an excellent cross section of independent cinema from Europe and around the world," he added.

World Premiere on Tuesday, October 12, is a documentary directed by Wendy
Apple. It takes the viewer on an entertaining journey inside the
editing room and examines the editor's vital role in the filmmaking process.
It explores how the editor/director relationship has changed over the years
from silents to the present day, where collaboration between editors and
directors can span twenty years or more. Directors such as Martin Scorsese,
Ridley Scott, Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, and many others, reveal
the close collaboration with their editors, and show how, by reshaping
scenes and intensifying emotional nuances, the editor has reinvented and
honed in the editing room what was originally shot on the set.

"FINDING NEVERLAND," the festival's Centerpiece Premiere on Wednesday,

family gather to bury the family patriarch and the beloved granddaughter of
the deceased is given the task of delivering the eulogy. In the days leading
up to the funeral, she tries to hold her lunatic clan together as secrets
are revealed, old grudges resurface, and the household erupts with renewed
vigor. The film was produced by Steven Haft, Richard B. Lewis, and Kirk

"UNDERTOW," from United Artists, will also be a Centerpiece Premiere on
Thursday, October 14. Directed by David Gordon Green, "Undertow" is a

a teenage troublemaker, and his brother, Tim, live with their widowed
father, who is suddenly visited by his brother, an ex-con with scores to
settle. A confrontation between their father and uncle prompts Chris and Tim
to flee -- with their uncle in hot pursuit -- and they are caught in a
terrifying game of cat-and-mouse. "Undertow" was written by David Gordon
Green and Joe Conway and produced by Lisa Muskat, Terence Malick, and Edward
R. Pressman.
