Filmmakers Alliance Presents

 

                                            2012

 

 


2012 will be our 15th year of VisionFest, Filmmakers Alliance annual screening and celebration bringing together the best of LA’s independent film community!



The evening begins with the presentation of the VISION AWARD to an established filmmaker whose artistic ambition and consistent filmmaking excellence provides artistic inspiration to emerging filmmakers all around the world.  Past recipients include MIke Figgis, Terry Gilliam, Wim Wenders, Allison Anders, Alexander Payne, David O. Russell, Werner Herzog, Mark and Michael Polish, Kevin Smith, Ted Hope, Nicolas Winding Refn and last year's recipient, Christine Vachon

This year’s Vision Award recipient is Korean filmmaker Kim Jee-woon.


 

If you don’t know him then you certainly will very soon courtesy of Hollywood (Kim Jee-woon is currently working on his first English-language project with Arnold Schwarzenegger called “Last Stand”); you may know him from “A Tale of Two Sisters,” which Terrence Rafferty of The New York Times calls “one of the best, and most heartbreaking , weird-girl horror movies ever made.” Rafferty also states that it “is so cunningly constructed-it’s as tricky, in its way, as Alain Resnais’ ‘Last Year at Marienbad.’”

Although Kim Jee-woon’s cinema does include the shocking and horrifying, his list of credits also includes comedy, noir and even the western. “I want to work with a wide range of genres because it gives each film a different cinematic energy,” Kim states.

Jee-woon’s eclectic oeuvre never fails to thrill and enthrall. His is an unfailingly distinctive vision that expresses itself in every frame of every genre he’s tackled...or mixed genre he’s created. FA is honored to be a part of his introduction to mainstream American audiences.

 
 

The presentation of awards will be followed by a program of some of the best short films produced in the previous year. This year, we opened up submissions to filmmakers nationally. Ironically, the theme that emerged from the films selected is:


"THE LA LIFE!"


Each film, directly and indirectly paints a small portrait of daily life in Los Angeles. See if you recognize your own story among them.


We are pleased to announce the following films:

 

Future Days (10:00) Directed by Clay Zimmerman

Mayfly (24:25) Directed by Aimee Graham

The Gaskettes (14:00) Directed by Jason House

Another Bullet Dodged (13:11) Directed by Landon Zakheim

 

Also, the program will be preceded by a special music video presentation:

A House A Home (07:00) directed by Daniel Fickle.


Total program length: 69 mins.


 


The evening finishes with a high-energy party in the Egyptian Theater courtyard catered by some of Los Angeles' best restaurants.

 

 

 

PARKING INFO:

The Egyptian no longer validates for the Hollywood & Highland complex parking lot or any other lot. There are several area parking lots nearby that charge various amounts.

 

 

Read Meter signs carefully. Parking regulations have changed and much of the parking is one hour only and meters are enforced until 8pm or later on side streets near the theatre. There is also free street parking on Selma (south of Hollywood Blvd.) and other area side streets.


Cherokee & Selma (south of Hollywood Boulevard).

South of Hollywood Blvd. there are attended Grant & Classic Parking lots on McCadden Place and on Las Palmas. Parking is $8-$20 flat rate maximum. They do NOT offer validation to Egyptian Theatre customers. There is often $5 parking in area lots a block east of the Egyptian. Always verify if you are paying a flat rate or hourly before parking.
