LA Film Festival Unveils 42 World Premieres

The LA Film Festival has announced its competition lineup of 42 world premieres with 43% of the films directed by women and 38% of the films by people of color.

“Curating films for La audiences is so special because Angelenos have a uniquely homegrown love of cinema,” said Creative Director Jennifer Cochis. “It’s with true film lovers in mind that we program: from political theater to musical theater, we’re highlighting storytelling in all its forms.”

Festival director Stephanie Allain said the diversity numbers have risen from the 2015 festival. “It’s very much our mission to discover new voices and support diversity,” she added.

Among the notable titles unveiled Tuesday was Amber Tamblyn’s debut feature film “Paint It Black” in the U.S. fiction lineup and Ben Lear’s documentary “They Call Us Monsters.”

Director of programming Roya Rastegar told Variety, “We were looking above all for stories with a sense of urgency to them. »
