‘Good’ end to fest

Historic Pacific, Tibitz once again in spotlight

HOLLYWOOD — A reinvigorated Los Angeles Film Festival closed its eighth edition with a screening Saturday of Miguel Arteta’s dark comedy “The Good Girl.”

David Duchovny, Ben Stiller, Heather Graham, Mario Van Peebles, Chris and Paul Weitz, producer Matthew Greenfield and co-star Zooey Deschanel were among those taking in the Jennifer Aniston starrer. The preem and the after-party unfolded in rarely used but historic Hollywood venues: the historic Pacific Theater and the nearby Tibitz Creative Stages.

Writer and co-star Mike White called the closing slot “a real honor. It should generate a lot of talk about the movie. So hopefully when the movie comes out, people will have heard about it.”

IFP/West prexy Vondie Curtis-Hall thought the film closed the fest’s best year yet. “This is our best year, and each year we hope to grow,” he said. “I’m so happy about the unity of the people involved. Everyone has done a great job. I’m looking forward to next year — it will be even better.”

Arteta, who has been making films in L.A. for 12 years, has watched the indie fest grow first hand. “This festival really rocked. Filmmakers really got to know each other and share ideas. It was a very stimulating environment.”
