2019 FESTIVAL GUIDE OCTOBER 5
“Hollywood is much more than a dynamic thought-leading community of artists and innovators. It is a leading international tourism destination and hometown to a global entertainment industry. For many people around the world, Hollywood is also a dream and somewhere right now a young girl with a story to tell is picking up her first camera. Somewhere else a young boy is hoping to be inspired by great stories and saving his money for a ticket to the movies or perhaps to buy his first smartphone. Whenever and wherever in the world those two dreams meet, it is there and then the future success of Hollywood will be built. That is why we work hard year round to leverage the vast storytelling and promotional resources of Hollywood to empower our generation's greatest storytellers. Welcome to the 2019 Hollywood Film Festival, setting the gold standard in global entertainment as we search the world for today's most inspiring films and tomorrow’s most exceptional emerging artists. Come celebrate ‘the best of the best’ in film and entertainment, as we honor Hollywood’s past, present ad future. Please join us in building a more inspiring, inclusive, and international future legacy for Hollywood.”
