Kodak will once again sponsor several events at the Los Angeles Film Festival (LAFF), which showcases new American and international cinema. The festival, now in its 15th year, runs June 18-28 at venues in and around Westwood Village.

Cinematographer Robbie Greenberg, ASC will be the main attraction at this year’s Kodak Focus on June 27 at 1 p.m. at The Landmark (10850 W. Pico Blvd. at Westwood Blvd.). Greenberg will offer his insights into the artistry and technology of his craft as he shows and discusses his work from a career that spans over 30 years. He won two consecutive Emmy® Awards for his work on Introducing Dorothy Dandridge and Winchell, as well as three additional nominations for Warm Springs, Iron Jawed Angels and James Dean. His work on four of these telefilms also earned him American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Awards. Greenberg’s extensive credits include The Milagro Beanfield War, Free Willy, Fools Rush In, Save the Last Dance, and Wild Hogs. This seminar is free with a ticket. (Tickets may be requested in person only at the Festival Ticket Center or at the door while supplies last.)

Other events organized by the festival also include Kodak Speed Dating, which offers session participants the opportunity to talk one on one with industry professionals, and Kodak Fast Track, an intensive film financing market that connects filmmakers seeking funding and financiers, production companies and other high-level industry professionals who can provide assistance. Previous Fast Track projects include Amreeka, Frozen River, Kabluey, Four Sheets to the Wind, Ira and Abby and After Innocence.

“We’re thrilled that the innovative filmmakers who are exhibiting their work here at LAFF continue to create their vision on film,” says Peter Boyce, Kodak’s general manager of North and South America. “Our goal is to listen, and continue providing the highest-quality tools that filmmakers want. We are committed to bringing the best products and services to the creative community, so they don’t have to make compromises at any stage of the filmmaking process.”
