Icy wilderness, towering wildlife, hair-raising escapes: Nope, they’re not scenes from Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Oscar-winning drama The Revenant. Rather, they’re all-too-real interludes from a sprawling global jaunt to sound the alarm on an escalating crisis.

The actor and environmental activist has produced and appears in a documentary on climate change titled Before the Flood, which is directed by Fisher Stevens and had its world premiere Thursday at the United Nations headquarters in New York City.

“I mean, there were definitely some hairy moments,” the actor told People at the premiere

Kristen Stewart in Jake Scott‘s Welcome to the Rileys (top); Michael P. Nash‘s Climate Refugees (upper middle); Roger Corman (lower middle); Neil Marshall‘s Centurion (bottom) Jake Scott‘s Welcome to the Rileys, starring Kristen Stewart (whose The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is screening tonight at midnight); Michael P. Nash‘s Climate Refugees; and "School of Corman: A Conversation with Roger Corman" are some of the Friday, June 25, highlights at the 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival. Welcome to the Rileys earned good notices for its cast when screened at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Kristen Stewart stars as a pole dancer-cum-sex worker befriended by a man (James Gandolfini) whose daughter has recently died. Melissa Leo co-stars. Right-wingers may claim that global warming is a liberal concoction, but those people portrayed in Climate Refugees probably think otherwise.

2010 Los Angeles Film Festival: Official Film List

The 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival is set to run June 17-27 in a brand new location. Oh, it’s still in L.A, but it’s moving across town, from Westwood — where it’s been held the past few years — all the way over to Downtown.

The main “hub” for the fest will be the new L.A. Live complex, but there will also be screenings at other locations, such as the Downtown Independent and Redcat theaters. The city is really trying to build downtown up into a major arts and culture hub, so the festival moving there fits in with that agenda. Film Independent, the organization that runs Laff, also runs the annual Independent Spirit Awards, an event that also moved downtown — from Santa Monica — this year.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse to Premiere at La Film Festival; Full Line-Up Announced

There are plenty of films to be excited about at this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival, but sadly they’ll probably be overshadowed by one. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will make its world debut at the festival on June 24th, six days before the film’s release date. However, the screening is invitation-only. How do you get an invitation? I have no idea. Maybe if you sign a contract saying your shrieking won’t rise above a certain decibel level.

As for the other films that aren’t invitation-only, there’s also the Sundance hit The Kids Are Alright, the closing night film Despicable Me, the Duplass Brother’s Cyrus, Neil Marshall’s Centurion, the education documentary Waiting for Superman, and Golden Lion-winner Lebanon.

Hit the jump to check out the full line-up. The 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival will from June 17 – 27.

Here’s the full line-up. For more details,
