The Global Film Village: LA Shorts Fest 2010


by Marla Lewin

We will be attending another Shorts Film Fest this time here in Los Angeles. They proclaim themselves to be the largest short film festival in the world with 285 film screenings and 9 days of educational panels, interactive and entertaining events. Their host venue is the Laemmle Sunset 5 Theaters located at 8000 Sunset Blvd. West Hollywood CA 90046.

They tell me that the festival has quickly become the industry standard for showcasing and awarding undiscovered talent. It is officially recognized by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, and some of these films may go on to receive Oscar nominations. In the past, 33 films that have played at the festival have received Oscar nominations with 11 winning the coveted Oscar statue.Showing on opening night, will be:

-       'B.O.B.'s BIG BREAK' with Seth Rogen,  Will Arnett, Hugh Laurie, directed by Robert Porter

-       'IDIOTS' with Zoe Saldana, Kate Bosworth and Janeane Garofalo,  directed by Kat Coiro,

-       'KIDNAPPING Caitlynn' with Julie Benz, Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen, directed by Kat Coiro,

-       'THE DRUNK HISTORY' Episodes 2, 5 & 6 with Jack Black, Will Ferrell, Don Cheadle, Zooey Deschanel, John C. Reily, Crispin Glover, directed by Jeremy Konner created by Derek Waters

The award categories are: Best of Fest, Best Foreign Film, Best Drama, Best Comedy, Best Documentary, Best Animation, Best Experimental, Best Music and Best Creative Commercial. Members of the Jury will be announced shortly.
