It's that time of year again, when Los Angeles comes together to celebrate a new and diverse slate of almost two hundred films (features, shorts and music videos) at the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival.
Hollywood is the perfect place to debut a finished project, but it is also a great setting for many of this year's films. "Beauty Is Embarrassing" and "G-Dog" are both documentary feature films about local LA legends (Wayne White and Father Greg Boyle) from behind the scenes; While "Magic Mike" and "Celeste and Jesse Forever" are more mainstream feature films starring Los Angeles locals like Cody Horn, Riley Keough, and Rashida Jones.
If seeing the movies opening week is for you, then pull out your popcorn vouchers and order your tickets.
