2008 Los Angeles Film Festival

From June 19 to 29 this fest will screen some new movies that could be interesting; the fest has many sections and here are the films that are in the Narrative Competition.

Big Heart City, Ben Rodkin, USA, 2007
HottieBoombaLottie, Seth Packard, USA, 2008
I’ll Come Running, Spencer Parsons, Denmark and USA, 2008

I suggest you check the International section that has some good movies, like the following.

La Frontera Infinita (Infinite Border), Juan Manuel Sepúlveda, Mexico, 2007 about the Guatemala/Mexico border and Central American and others immigrants that in this border find the first obstacle in their trip to USA. Described as a “poetic look” at the border between Mexico and its Central American neighbors.

¿Dónde Estan Sus Historias? (Where Are Their Stories), Nicolás Pereda, Canada and Mexico, 2007
