Helmer to program sidebar, host two-day retreat

Director Mira Nair (“Vanity Fair,” “Monsoon Wedding”) will serve as guest director for the 2004 Los Angeles Film Festival.

Nair will host a two-day filmmaker retreat, program a sidebar of films that have inspired her work and attend opening-night festivities. Independent Feature Project/Los Angeles will announce the complete festival lineup next month. Event will run June 17-26.
