“Camp, Cult, Classics” will be the theme of the inaugural Century City Film Festival, which runs Oct. 27-30.
Benefiting the Minorities in Broadcasting Training Program, fest will feature panels and seminars, screenings, a closing-night gala and kudofest and a tribute to a member of the industry for work on behalf of minorities in entertainment.
Ed Wood will be one of the fest’s honorees. In addition, an award named after the cult writer-helmer will be given to the top filmmaker in the “nontraditional” category.
Other competitive categories include features, live-action shorts and documentaries. Fest also will feature a screenwriting competition and award.
Patrice Williams, CEO and founder of the training program and director of the fest, has received close to 500 submissions and is in the process of selecting the fest’s jury.
