Tickets on sale Thursday for 19th annual fest

The Los Angeles Film Festival has selected Pedro Almodovar’s “I’m So Excited!” as its opening night film on June 13.

Screening will be the North American premiere for the comedy, set almost entirely on an airplane. Sony Classics is opening “I’m So Excited” on June 28.

The Los Angeles Film Festival will screen more than 200 feature films, shorts, and music videos, representing more than 30 countries, and conclude June 23.

The fest, now in its 19th year, moved to downtown Los Angeles in 2010. Fest organizer Film Independent has based fest events mostly based around the L.A. Live complex and its Regal cinemas, with a Festival Village set up atop the parking structure.

Film Independent members can begin buying tickets Thursday and passes will be available to the general public on April 19.
