There are a LOT of festivals in LA every year (click here for an incredible list), but the Los Angeles Film Festival is the one I look forward to the most.  It’s certainly one of the most fun…and I’ve made so many great discoveries there (“A Small Act” and “Marwencol” to name two).  Come downtown to LA Live or various other venues starting this Thursday June 14th through Sunday the 24th to see a great movie and hang out with filmmakers and film lovers of all stripes!

I’ll be there, blogging and tweeting about films to see and things to do.  If you’re not following me at KCRW_Matt (or for that matter The Business producer DarbyKCRW and The Treatment producer JennyKCRW) you’ll be missing out!
