Los Angeles Film Festival 2014 Line-Up
Way Too Indie loves Film Independent and their support of independent cinema, so we’re quite excited to see the line-up announcement for this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival. This year marks 20 years of the festival and to mark the occasion they are showcasing films inspired by the city.
The festival kicks off with the North American première of Bong Joon-Ho’s Chris Evans helmed, sci-fi action film, Snowpiercer and will close with the première of Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys, based on the hit musical and starring Christopher Walken. Gala screenings include Ira Sachs’ Love Is Strange, which stars John Lithgow and Alfred Molina as longtime companions who finally get to marry only to be separated by housing issues, Justin Simien’s Dear White People about black students at Winchester University who take action over a racist frat party, and Hossein Amini’s The Two Faces of January, starring Viggo Mortenson and Kirsten Dunst as misguided tourists caught up in a murder mystery.
