The Los Angeles Film Festival will host the North American premiere of Woody Allen’s “To Rome With Love” as its opening-night film on June 14.
“I can’t think of a better way to kick off this year’s festival than with the original independent filmmaker himself, Woody Allen,” said festival director Stephanie Allain.
“To Rome With Love” stars Allen, Alec Baldwin, Roberto Benigni, Penelope Cruz, Judy Davis, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. It’s produced by Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum.
Sony Pictures Classics is opening the pic domestically on June 22.
The 18th edition of the festival, to run June 14-24, will screen more than 200 feature films, shorts and musicvideos, representing more than 30 countries, along with programs such as the Filmmaker Retreat, Ford Amphitheater Outdoor Screenings, Poolside Chats, Coffee Talks and music events.
