Earning mention from Santa Monica Mirror and the Malibu Times, the Malibu Film Festival brings cutting-edge cinema to eager audiences with a schedule of 24 films and special events. The fest kicks off with a red-carpet event at Hollywood Theaters on October 6, at 6:30 pm, with glamorous stars strutting and sashaying down the red carpet, posing for photos and inspiring the envy of ambitious vacuum cleaners. After sighting celebrities, sit down for a trip to Fiji with director Mary Lambert’s short Miss South Pacific: Beauty and the Sea, which grapples with climate change as it documents the 2009–2010 Miss South Pacific beauty pageant, and investigate the pitfalls of smootching with a special 8 p.m. screening of Kissing Strangers. After the evening’s entertainment, don your party clothes and head to the Malibu Lumberyard for the opening-night soirée at 9:30 p.m.
Screenings continue at the Malibu Lumberyards at sundown on October 8. Filmgoers can close out the festival with four programs of film screenings, which merge into one massive experimental art piece if viewed simultaneously. Sip cocktails under the stars, applaud at awards presentations, and party the night away at the closing celebration at the Lumber Yard.
