Got back to town and juried the short films at LA Film Fest. After the last couple festivals, I’d seen over half of the shorts already. Crazy. I already have another jury gig at Palm Springs in August and I can’t imagine there’s many shorts I haven’t seen at this point.
I have to give tremendous credit to LAFF for moving to Westwood. I’ve been attending the festival for years and for the first time, it feels like the festival has its own village. Not to mention that the theaters in Westwood are the greatest in the world. And yes, the Mann Village is the greatest theater in the world. Fuck the Arclight. Fuck the Mann Chinese.
