IFP delays fest, taps director

New date is June 21-29

The 2002 IFP/West Los Angeles Film Festival has been moved to June 21-29 from its original April slot, while Rachel Rosen has been tapped director of programming for the fest, under festival director Rich Raddon.

Rosen, a veteran programmer who most recently served as associate director of programming for the San Francisco Intl. Film Festival, will also organize IFP/West’s year-round screening programs. Rosen intends to broaden the scope of the fest to include international films and to cultivate ties between veteran and emerging filmmakers from the U.S. and abroad. Last year, the IFP/West took over the running of the fest, which was renamed the IFP/West Los Angeles Film Festival.

“More than ever, festivals are an important exhibition forum within today’s competitive environment,” said Dawn Hudson, exec director of IFP/West. “Our goal for the IFP/West and the festival remains to widen the audience for independent films and champion the unique vision of independent filmmakers.”

The IFP/West Los Angeles Film Festival showcases approximately 50 features and 40 shorts and attracts annually around 30,000 attendees.
