The Los Angeles FIlm Festival kicked off in LA last night, moving to Westwood for the first timed. "So many people in L.A. are, quite frankly, ground down by life in the industry," Film Independent exec director Dawn Hudson told the LA Times, in a fest preview article. "We want to remind them why they came here in the first place. We want to remind them that it was for a love of film."
