Already announced last week were the Buzz and Limelight sections, which include world premieres of films featuring the likes of Laverne Cox (“FREE CeCe!”), Idris Elba (“A Hundred Streets”) and Teresa Palmer (“Lights Out”). LAFF has always been more premiere-heavy than AFI Fest, which takes place in Hollywood each November and primarily culls its selection from the Berlin, Cannes, Toronto and other film festivals. This year’s edition of the fest runs from June 1–9 at the newly opened Arclight Culver City. Regal L.A. LIVE in downtown hosted LAFF for the last several years.
