The Los Angeles area film festival season starts soon!  Two outstanding ones include:

The Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival:  Always a favorite, this is expertly curated festival features wonderful films and runs from April 26th to May 3, 2017.  Founded in 2006, the festival’s Executive Director is Hilary Helstein, herself an accomplished film director.  It’s sponsored by the Los Angeles Jewish Journal, among others.  I’ll be there, and will post coverage as I do.  For more info. and tickets, visit lajfilmfest.org.

COLCOA French Film Festival.  If you are a fan of French cinema (and what self-respecting film buff isn’t?) you will enjoy the COLCOA French Film Festival, running April 24th to May 2.  For more info. and tickets, visit colcoa.org.

Many other festivals coming up, including the Los Angeles Film Festival, Dances with Films, Turner Classic Film Festival, and on and on.  Isn’t is great living in Los Angeles?
