The Hollywood Film Festival has unveiled the 25 films chosen for its narrative and documentary feature competitions.

The three-day fest kicks off on Oct. 18 at Hollywood’s ArcLight Cinemas. The festival will screen “Burton and Taylor,” the BBC TV movie starring Dominic West and Helena Bonham Carter as Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, “The Red Robin,” starring Judd Hirsch, and “Drew: The Man Behind the Poster,” a doc about movie poster artist Drew Struzan.

Unlike most festivals, HFF will not spotlight an opening or closing night film, but will introduce a Celebrating Hollywood segment featuring films either shot in Hollywood or about the film biz. Titles include the world preems of Daniel Yost’s “A Star for Rose” and Jill D’Agnenica’s “Life Inside Out.”

Fest director Jon Fitzgerald is also introducing another new program, CineCause Spotlight, highlighting social impact movies such as the documentaries “Friends of Mine” (Matthew Palmer), “Tiny” (Christopher Smith, Merete Mueller), and “Blood Brother” (Steve Hoover).

    I don’t see any new film makers, Hollywood only used new film-makers from around the world to pay for The Hollywood Film Festival. They only choose selected film-makers from Hollywood only. what a rip off?
