Wayne Federman isn’t only a funny guy, he also likes him some movies, so much so that he started his own international film festival, wherein he and friends of his pick movies they love, screen them at Cinefamily in Los Angeles, and talk about them. It’s something we’d all like to do, surely, but Mr. Federman, who wrote for Jimmy Fallon and played himself on The X-Files, has actually made it so. Now in its third year, The Wayne Federman International Film Festival will again be showing six films presented by six different comedians over the course of four days.
The schedule of events goes like this:
Thursday, May 1st, 7:30pm: Boogie Nights (hosted by Doug Benson!)
Friday, May 2nd, 7:30pm: The Dead Zone (hosted by Kathy Griffin!)
Friday, May 2nd, 10:30pm: Manhattan (hosted by Taylor Negron!)
Saturday, May 3rd, 7:30pm: The Bank Dick (hosted by T.J. Miller!)
Saturday, May 3rd, 10:15pm: Airplane! (hosted by Jimmy Pardo!)
Sunday, May 4th, 7:30pm: Sweet Smell of Success (hosted by Jeff Garlin!)
A pretty eclectic mix, we think you’ll agree. If you’d like to see any of these films and enjoy some classic movie talk, head to Cinefamily.org before all the tickets disappear like Dirk Diggler’s dreams or Lloyd Bridges having given up sniffing glue.
