Alto Will Be in Los Angeles in July...will YOU?
We are thrilled to announce that we've been accepted into the Downtown Film Festival Los Angeles. The festival runs from July 22-26, 2015. We haven't gotten our exact screening date yet but expect that to follow shortly. In the meantime, they want to know if any of our cast and crew can attend the screening!
If you think you can swing it or if it's even in the realm of possibility, please let me know ASAP by replying to this newsletter. I would LOVE to have you there and want to let them know so they can add it to press materials.
We will be screening at the newly renovated Regent Theater at 448 South Main Street in downtown LA (of course). The theater has a rich history. Opened in 1914, it also had decades of use as an adult movie venue. Rest assured, it has been "cleaned up" (with Clorox, hopefully) and was reopened in fall of 2014, after years of renovation.
Another great thing about DFFLA is that Leyla Akdogan has created the signature artwork for this year's Downtown Film Festival LA (see above) honoring women in the industry. They are serious about better representation of women in film. Very happily, Alto can say it was produced AND lensed by women, and the film itself does pass the Bechdel Test :).
Hope you can join us! More exciting news about festivals coming soon.
