Valley Film Festival Set to Open

The curtain will rise at the 14th annual Valley Film Festival Wednesday at the Laemmle NoHo 7 theatre in the North Hollywood Arts District. Festival founder and organizer Tracey Adlai said that while the San Fernando Valley is host to many other festivals, hers is the only one she is aware of that showcases the work of area filmmakers. “It is important to make sure our local filmmakers have an outlet,” Adlai said. This year’s festival, which ends Sunday, will screen 45 short and feature length films, with half being locally produced. The opening night’s film, “Route 30 Three” is directed by John Putch, a Studio City resident. Other films include the 16-minute short, “Baghdad Messi,” which is in the running to be nominated for an Academy Award, and the 5-minute short, “Flyboy,” produced by Oscar nominee Drew Bailey. The Laemmle NoHo 7 is at 5240 Lankershim Blvd. Tickets are priced at $12 and are available online through the festival’s website.
