2 Festivals. 1 Mission.
**Tickets available here: https://filmfreeway.com/RisingAboveFest/tickets**
FILM FEST LA's mission is to provide a festival where filmmakers are treated with respect & given opportunities that empower the filmmaker’s career while being showcased at the most prestigious location in Los Angeles, Regal LA LIVE: A Barco Innovation Center. We strive to do things differently than other festivals. We believe that helping others is the only way to operate & want filmmakers that also have this mindset, so we cultivate a working community in Hollywood that will continue to extend past the festival.
We are fortunate again this year to have our sister exclusive women’s empowerment festival, RISING ABOVE FEST, join us. RAF was created by multi-award winning Actress/Producer/Writer Summer Moore to celebrate females who are working to make the world a better place through the Film/TV, Music, & Fashion industries. In the festival's inaugural year (2017), many press venues were in attendance, including “Huffington Post” & "Getty Images."
RAF will include a celebrity panel that highlights successful women in these industries to discuss how they were able to accomplish such great feats in their careers. Our celebrity panel: “Being Successful in a Male Driven World: How Women Rise Above” hosted by comedian/actress/writer, Lisa Ann Walter. Following the panel will be a screening with films made by women in power positions and a Q&A. Premieres for the fest will be Lisa Ann Walter’s trailer for her new comedy “Bitter,” directed by Lea Thompson and Summer Moore’s new horror trailer, “6 Feet Above,” (feature slated to be directed by Hellraiser II’s Tony Randel and with Oscar winning attachments).
RAF is also partnering with Girl Uplifters Team, a youth organization working to impact a change for females with several of Hollywood’s star child actresses involved and will be in attendance.
