To say they were pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. “Everything worked beyond our wildest imaginings,” Festival Director Rebecca Yeldham said last week as she was putting the finishing touches on the 2011 event, which rolls into Downtown this week.“ Last year was a huge success. We had our highest attendance ever and we’re hoping for the same this year.” The festival opens Thursday, June 16, with Richard Linklater’s Bernie at the Regal Cinemas Stadium 14 at L. A. Live. By the time it ends on June 26, it will have screened more than 200 features, documentaries and shorts. Organizers hope to again draw the approximately 90,000 visitors who attended last year. The 17th annual festival is produced by the nonprofit organization Film Independent. Films from over 30 countries, selected from more than 5,000 submissions, will be screened. Other area venues including REDCAT and the Downtown Independent theater will also host screenings. Become a F eboo com/ Downtown News The fes...

The Vision Thing Once the idea for the festival was hatched and its date chosen, it was time to select the work. While Russell’s New York slate bends toward European companies, the focus of this Radar is Los Angeles, with a healthy dose of Latin American and Pacific Rim countries thrown in. — Chile, Japan and Mexico. There are even groups from Austin, Texas and Australia When a theater conference arrives in a city, it’s not uncommon for artists to showcase their work for visitors. But Radar L. A., and Under the Radar before it, also allows audi- ences into the mix. Continued from page 1 Murphy, executive director of REDCAT and one of the three curators of Radar L. A.“ We wanted this to take place in a dynamic urban setting, with a critical mass of people walking from venue to venue, sharing meals between shows and all meeting up in the Lounge at REDCAT to talk about what they’ve seen and dance to DJs. That seemed more exciting than people driving around L. A.” Murphy’s compatriots a...

Continued from page 24 Festival has established a strong reputation for documentaries.

4 Downtown News Urban Scrawl by Doug Davis Embracing a Growing City West This latest closure again leads us to believe that Angels Flight needs outside help. This should not immediately be seen as a bad thing — the railway is run by volunteers who did an admirable job raising money for and returning the cars Sinai and Olivet to service. Without their leadership, the project would likely still sit idle. That said, anyone who runs a business, nonprofit or anything else needs to understand when they’ll get further with help, when it is time to stop going it alone. That point has been reached with Angels Flight. The CPUC letter also stated,“ We believe that due to the flange wear and resultant excessive lateral movement of the Sinai cars along the track and through the guardrail, continued operations would be unsafe.” This is not a risk anyone should take. First and foremost, Angels Flight needs to be safe. The operators of the railway should reach out for help. If they are reluctant to...
