On the cusp of awards season, Cloud Atlas, a film by the Wachowski siblings, premiered at the Toronto Film Festival to buzzing rumors: At an estimated budget of $100 million dollars, only a portion of which came from Warner Bros, the rest independently raised, Cloud Atlas would be the most costly independent film release of all time.
Luckily, reviews were fantastic and the film gives testament to the rise of independent filmmaking. Cloud Atlas leads a pack of independent releases including Beasts of the Southern Wild, Spring Breakers starring James Franco and Selena Gomez, and Looper starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, as an exciting crop of both established and emerging filmmakers strive to build roots with audiences eager for more.
In a celebration of fresh talent and ingenuity within the independent film community, NewFilmmakers LA Film Festival features an eclectic line-up of local and international content. A red carpet gala provides the opportunity to meet and connect with filmmakers, cast, and crew, while enjoying cocktails and music in a sociable atmosphere.
