FIND ANNOUNCES NEW ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

Jun 09, 2009

LOS ANGELES (June 9, 2009) – Today Film Independent, the non-profit arts organization that produces the Spirit Awards and the Los Angeles Film Festival, announced critically acclaimed author Khaled Hosseini and Pritzker Prize winning architect Thom Mayne as the Artists in Residence for the 2009 Los Angeles Film Festival, presented by the Los Angeles Times.  The Los Angeles Film Festival will run from Thursday, June 18 to Sunday, June 28. 

 

In their roles as Artists in Residence, each has programmed a film that has inspired their work, followed by a conversation.  Khaled Hosseini has selected Cyrus Nowrasteh’s The Stoning of Soraya M., to be followed by a panel discussion with Nowrasteh, the film’s actress Shohreh Aghdashloo, and internationally acclaimed writer and scholar of religions Reza Aslan.

 

Thom Mayne will be engaging in a fascinating dialogue with acclaimed cinematographer Frederick Elmes about architecture and cinema, and screening specific film references that will offer insight into their work with light and space to create both imagined and living environments.

 

"We love having artists from different mediums who share a passion for cinema and a critical and conscious engagement with society as our Artists in Residence," said Festival Director Rebecca Yeldham.  "We look forward to having Khaled and Thom share their film selections and insights with the Festival's audiences and our community of artists."

 

Additional Official Festival selections include the documentaries When You’re Strange from director Tom DiCillo and The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia from director Julien Nitzberg, Fox Searchlight’s offbeat romantic comedy (500) Days of Summer from director Marc Webb, and First Independent Pictures’ Big Fan, a character study drama from director Robert D. Siegel.

 

Festival passes, individual tickets and event information is currently available by contacting the Festival Ticketing Center at 866.FILM.FEST (866.345-6337) or LAFilmFest.com.  Festival Passes and tickets can also be purchased in person beginning Friday, June 12 at the Festival Ticketing Center located at 1038 Westwood Blvd.  In addition to screenings and events, Festival passes at all levels provide access to a series of networking receptions and entry to the ZonePerfect live.create. lounge at 1028 Westwood Blvd. where Festival pass holders can interact with Festival filmmakers and professionals in the film community.
