Sellout for Hollywood's Conservative Film Festival

Sellout for Hollywood's Conservative Film Festival

L.A.'s first conservative film festival, the Liberty Film Festival, is already selling out as audiences respond enthusiastically to the festival's groundbreaking slate of new conservative films.

The West Coast premiere of Larry Elder's film "Michael & Me" is totally sold out, as are all full passes to the festival.

The festival opens this Friday, Oct. 1, with writer/director Stephen Bannon's controversial "In the Face of Evil: Reagan's War in Word and Deed" and Oscar-nominated writer Lionel Chetwynd's "Celsius 41.11."

The festival will be held Oct. 1-3 at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.

"In the Face of Evil," having its West Coast premiere at the festival, looks at President Ronald Reagan's victory over communism within the context of mankind's continual fight against evil – including the current war against Islamic fascism.

"Celsius 41.11," which also has its West Coast premiere at the festival, is Lionel Chetwynd's response to allegations made by Michael Moore in "Fahrenheit 9/11."

Other hot festival screenings among the 20 films being shown include "WMD: The Murderous Reign of Saddam Hussein" (world premiere) by Kurdish/Iraqi director Jano Rosebiani; the edgy black-and-white suspense thriller "Terminal Island" by Jason Apuzzo & Govindini Murty (world premiere); and Mike Wilson's widely anticipated "Michael Moore Hates America."

The panel discussion "You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again," on Sunday, Oct. 3, will examine whether or not there is a new Hollywood blacklist against conservatives.

Panelists include producer-director David Zucker ("Phone Booth," "Scary Movie 3"), talk show host Michael Medved, producer Doug Urbanski ("The Contender"), actress Morgan Brittany ("Dallas"), Andrew Breitbart of The Drudge Report, producer Dan Gifford (of the Oscar-nominated "Waco: Rules of Engagement") and NewsMax.com columnist James Hirsen.

On Saturday, Oct. 2, the festival will host a Ronald Reagan tribute, featuring a screening of Reagan's World War II classic, "Desperate Journey."

The festival closes with a screening of Cecil B. DeMille's religious drama and Cold War parable, "The Ten Commandments," introduced with a special lecture by Michael Medved.
