Movieline Hits the 2009 Los Angeles Film Festival


After an all-too-brief stay at CineVegas, Movieline is headed a little closer to home for its next festivalgoing jaunt. Or maybe a lot closer -- as in Westwood, where we'll be on hand for this year's Los Angeles Film Festival. Opening tonight with the world premiere of the Ryan Reynolds-in-tights indie dramedy Paper Man, winding through a mildly high-profile Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen event, and concluding June 28 with a gala screening of animation legend Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo (with numerous other screenings, panels and events in between), there seems to be something for everyone. And plenty to keep us busy.

As such, keep an eye on this space for interviews with LAFF directors including Davis Guggenheim (It Might Get Loud), Ondi Timoner (We Live in Public), Nick Jasenovec (Paper Heart), Havana Marking (Afghan Star), Alexis Dos Santos (Unmade Beds) and others, plus premiere coverage, events-crashing and all the fun atmospheric readings accompanying any film festival. Look us up if you happen to be in the neighborhood, and by all means, share here if and/or when you see something good.
