The first-ever LGBT-themed 3D film program launches with the premiere of the short Leviticus 20:13.
The tolerance-themed short, made by Christopher Crescitelli, who is also director of the annual 3D film fest, will screen Saturday night as part of the inaugural Out in 3D film prorgam at L.A.'s Regal Cinemas.
Another film of interest is a screening of Experience Montreaux in 3D, a chronicle of the famed jazz music festival and which features appearances from Quincy Jones, Elvis Costello, and Massive Attack. Jones will be honored on closing night and is scheduled to perform with his Global Gumbo All Stars band and present a screening of the documentary We Are The World for Haiti 25 Behind the Scenes, which features an appearance by the late Michael Jackson.
Hung actor Thomas Jane will as the festival's celebrity host for the third consecutive year.
“The art of 3D Filmmaking continues to grow, and 3DFF is humbled and honored to host multiple film and music legends at this year’s event along with their exciting new 3D movies, which are some of the best natively shot indie-3D films that the Festival has ever seen in its lineup," Jane says in a statement released to the press. "We wish all the 3DFF filmmakers this year best of luck in the competition and we encourage you to continue making great 3D content.”
The festival begins tonight at various locations in Los Angeles and continues through Saturday. For more information on the festival go to 3DFF.org.
