Festival celebrates 3D technology in the heart of the New Hollywood.
Hollywood, CA — The first 3D Film Festival (3DFF) is back for its third season with a newly redesigned program and a new home in Hollywood. After traversing the globe on a world tour of more than 50 cities, the pioneering 3D technology festival has announced its new annual residency at The Los Angeles Film School (LAFS) located in the heart of the stunningly redesigned Sunset and Vine district of Hollywood.
With support from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and City Council Member Eric Garcetti`s Office, “The 3D Film Festival celebrates the latest in film technology, ensuring Los Angeles remains on the cutting edge, and by working with the LA Film School, this festival will help to keep the film industry where it belongs — in Hollywood — for years to come,” stated Mr. Garcetti.
The 3D Film Festival will help promote the city`s re-development efforts in the area including the new Hollywood Subway Station, which transports passengers directly to and from the front steps of the new W Hollywood Hotel, the official hotel of 3DFF and a short walk to the main screening room at Los Angeles Film School.
The 3D Film Festival, presented by RealD and The Los Angeles Film School is produced by 3D live event pioneer The Dream Factory, will feature four days of events spread out over five city blocks with screenings and red carpet premieres being held at the Los Angeles Film School`s new RealD 3D-enabled screening room. In support of the screenings taking place at LAFS, Sony Electronics will provide its 4K digital cinema projector, with RealD being the exclusive 3D technology provider for the festival screenings.
The LAFS theater will also function as a classroom for 3DFF`s 3D Academy educational programs offering intensive training classes for 3D stereoscopic filmmakers and technicians. Beginning in 2011, LAFS will offer a 3D course of study for its students. The highlight of the 3D Academy program will be the 72 Hour 3DFF Short Film Festival in which LAFS students will be given 72 hours to create a 3D short film that will be presented during the 3DFF Closing Night Event and Award Show. Our goal at the Los Angeles Film School is to be on the forefront of film education; hosting the 3DFF is the perfect opportunity to embrace this exciting technology of tomorrow,” stated Diane Cerycz-Kessler, Co-Chairman of the Los Angeles Film School.
3DFF will announce its full line up of nightly screenings this August to include the 3ology Short Film Program and a nightly 3D Horror Film Showcase at Midnight. The Festival will open on Thursday September 30th.
The 3D Academy Sessions will be daily from 8am to 3pm at Los Angeles Film School. The 3D Lounge will be open daily September 30th to October 3rd from 10am to 5pm at the Los Angeles Film School.
