The Jalopnik Film Festival, now in its third year, is motoring west to Los Angeles for the weekend of September 25-26.
The festival, devoted to all-things automobile, will feature a full day of documentary and narrative films at the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Titles slated for screening include Bent-Jorgen Perlmutt’s “Havana Motor Club,” Adam Carolla’s “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman” and “Steve McQueen: The Man and Le Mans.” John Frankenheimer’s “Ronin” and George Miller’s original “Mad Max” will also be getting the big screen treatment.
The festival will include a reader-submitted short film competition, judged by Carolla, L.A. Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson, filmmaker Jeff Zwart and TV personality Spike Feresten.
