Cinevegas starts with ‘Hustle’

'Land of Dead' to close film fest

Sundance fave “Hustle & Flow” will open the CineVegas Film Festival, running June 10-18.

Ann-Margret, Nicolas Cage, Wim Wenders and Samantha Morton will be honored at the event, as will George Romero, whose pic “Land of the Dead” will close it.

Event’s motto this year is “100 Years of Las Vegas, 100 Years of Film.” Along with sections titled “Sure Bets” and “Jackpot Premieres,” CineVegas will also feature a “Diamond Discoveries” indie section and a local-fare “Nevada Filmmaking” sidebar.

In years past, CineVegas has hosted preems of “Spun,” “The Weather Underground,” “Poolhall Junkies” and “Bubba Ho-tep.”
