On May 3 and 4, Life Fest Hollywood marks its 8th year at Raleigh Studios, Hollywood, the original Chaplin Studios. The goal of Life Fest is to honor films that underscore the significance of an individual life, especially the seemingly insignificant. Life Fest’s signature award, the “Spirit of Capra,” is named after director Frank Capra, whose work underscored the significance of the seemingly insignificant life.
Many diverse shorts and features have been honored at Life Fest over the years: October Baby, The Way; Doonby; The Book Thief; Brother’s Keeper; Return to the Hiding Place, Gosnell, and now Unplanned, which has been nominated for picture of the year.
Screenings run May 3-4, with workshops and industry networking opportunities. A limited-time early bird discount (code EZ) is available on-line. See more at http://Lifefilmfest.com.
