“Arrival” | Saturday, May 4 | 4:45pm | Directors Guild of America 2 | LAAPFF Page
What were you doing ten years ago (2003)?
“Ten years ago I was in high school in Ohio dreaming about the day I’d be in LA making films… and probably thinking about girls at the same time.”
What is your favorite memory of LAAPFF?
“My favorite memory of LAAPFF had to be last year, screening my film “Café Elevé” at the Director’s Guild of America for the first time ever. That theater has such an amazing history, and it was an honor and hopeful glimpse into a day in which I’ll hopefully be able to fill the entire place with an audience waiting to see my feature film.”
Tell us why we should watch your film in this year’s film festival.
“I think “Arrival” and the other shorts in our program really tell stories from an amazing female perspective. Although I am a male filmmaker, I think that female voices/ perspectives, especially strong ones, need a higher presence within mainstream Hollywood. While hopefully helping support that ideal, our film is hopefully touching and entertaining at the end of the day. We can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
Because Audrey Magazine is a small publication, we rely on the kindness of our many artsy friends and interns to contribute their talents to our team. And they’re so cool, they’re off creating other cool stuff when they’re not creating cool stuff for Audrey. Cool, huh? Here are where a few of our contributors are up to in their (limited) spare time.
