LA Film Festival Departs Downtown

The LA Film Festival will ditch downtown and spread out its locations next year, festival’s organizers announced Tuesday. Film Independent, the non-profit that produces the event, said the festival will take place at ArcLight Cinemas located throughout the city between June 1 and 9.

The festival previously took place at Regal’s multiplex cinema downtown.

“We are so happy to be launching this partnership with ArcLight Cinemas,” said Film Independent President Josh Welsh in a statement. “The ArcLight Cinemas are known for the highest quality projection and sound that will delight filmmakers and audiences alike. We share a mutual audience of filmmakers and film lovers who revel in unique cinematic experiences.”

Festival headquarters will be at ArcLight Culver City.

In a statement, Gretchen McCourt, executive vice president of cinema programming at ArcLight Cinemas said that the cinema was happy to be the new home for the festival.

“We are thrilled to partner with the LA Film Festival, such a dynamic forum for filmmakers in Los Angeles,” she said.
