As has been the case for several years now, Indiewire is the place to get to known the Los Angeles Film Festival filmmakers ahead of the annual festival in the City of Angels. Over the past few days, we've been posting the 2012 batch of filmmaker profiles leading up to tomorrow's launch of the festival. We'll keep posting the remaining ones today, and during the first few days of the event.

Indiewire invited directors with films in the Narrative Feature Competition and Documentary Feature Competition to take part by submitting responses to a series of questions in their own words.
