The Broad Humor Film Festival will showcase three feature films as part of its fifth anniversary event Friday through Sunday, June 11th through 13th at the Electric Lodge, 1416 Electric Ave., Venice.
Event promoters say there are films this year for “all tastes — sweet and razor sharp, smart and silly, sophisticated and totally gross.”
The feature films this year include: Noche Transfigurada (Alexia Mui“os), a Spanish film about sensible Helena who trails her boyfriend’s other woman all night and discovers herself in the process; Action!!! (Hillary Walker), a mockumentary send-up of the film industry where film students in a Christian college interview members of a movie crew filming in their small town; and Trippin’ ( Devi Snively), a spoof of scary thrillers. Snively is the winner of last year’s Best Short for her film, Meat is Murder.
The festival will open with an evening of short films by women who have had their works featured in previous Broad Humor Festivals. Two other short film programs will round out the screening schedule.
Three professional film panels on the process of movie-making will also be held over the weekend.
There is free parking on the premises. The schedule of events and times can be found at www.broadhumor.com/schedule.htm. Tickets are on sale at www.broadhumor.com/tickets.htm/.
