Half of all films screening are Women Directors, including Claudia Sparrow's Opening Night Film 'I Remember You' staring Stefanie Butler and Joe Egender.

Documentary Music: The festival's Centerpiece program and World Premiere of Director Kathy Kolla's 'Who Is Billy Bones?' the story of seminal L.A. punk rocker. Closing night 'Hardcore Devo Live', directed by Keirda Bahruth. It's a live concert film of the post-punk rockers 2014 tour. Director Ron Chapman's 'The Poet of Havana' is the story of Cuban musician Carlos Varela. Shot in Havana with unique access, interviews and concert footage. Varela is joined by his friends Jackson Browne and Benicio del Toro.

Documentaries: Los Angeles premiere screening of 'East LA. Interchange' directed by Betsy Kalin explores Boyle Heights, a community adjacent to DTLA. World Premiere screening of 'Radicalized', directed by Sam Slovick follows the lives of post-Occupy L.A. group of activists as they create their own anarchist collective.

Documentaries: 'Freeway: Crack In They System', Director Marc Levin's searing look at the federal government's complicity in the crack cocaine epidemic that nearly destroyed the inner-city neighborhoods. Narrated by Oscar-nominee James Cromwell, 'Imminent Threat', directed by Janek Ambros about the gross violations of civil liberties in the name of the U.S. government's War on Terror.

On a lighter note, two dramatic features with heavy does of underworld satires will have their Los Angeles premieres. Director Mikki del Monico's, 'Alto' is your basic coming-out-to-family story except in this case her mob relatives are The Family.  Director Jillian Armenante's 'Kittens In A Cage', has familiar "babes behind bars" story line but with a twist, as a ukulele-playing bad girl gets muscled in prison. 'A Sort of Homecoming', a dramatic feature that is "Spellbound" meets "Perfect Pitch". Director Maria Burton takes the audience into the subculture of high school debate clubs.

Wrapping up the feature line-up is the festival's Heritage Film presentation and World Premiere of Director Wes Wheadon's 'When Bette Met Mae', a docudrama about the first encounter between two proto-feminists icons of Hollywood's Golden Era - Bette Davis and Mae West. The meeting took place late in both of their careers, and contemporary look-alike actors are used to reenact the event. However, in what may be a cinematic first, the dialogue heard by the audience are the actual voices of Bette Davis and Mae West.

The five-day event, July 22-26, will be held in venues throughout downtown L.A.'s historic core with The Regent Theater, 448 S. Main St., serving as the festival's primary venue.
