This year’s Los Angeles Film Festival will kick off with Richard Linklater’s Bernie, and two more worthwhile films have been added to the festival. Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block and Lee Tamahori’s The Devil’s Double will join Chris Weitz’ A Better Life, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, and Martin Campbell’s Green Lantern in the LA Film Fest’s “Galas” section. I can personally vouch for Attack the Block and I’ve heard that The Devil’s Double is a lot of fun.
Passes to attend the Festival are currently available to the general public, with special rates for Film Independent members. The links to buy passes for Attack the Block and The Devil’s Double are currently marked “N/A”, which I guess means they’re either sold out or they haven’t been put up for sale yet. The 2011 Los Angeles Film Festival runs from June 16 – 26th.
