Las Vegas Film Festival Celebrated 10 Years of Magic June 6-10, 2017

Written and Photography by Nikki Artale

It was magic attending the screenings of many fabulous films with daily festival mixers, parties and panel discussions that were attended by filmgoers and film makers.  This year’s festival was held entirely in Brendan Theaters inside the Palms Casino Resort. National filmmakers and film lovers from all over the world came to enjoy the films and attend the daily panels that were very informative. 

Included once again was CineVegas Presents at LVFF which featured a fine selection of films, under the direction of Trevor Groth and Mike Pante. The festival lineup was a mixture of documentaries, feature films and highlighted films made by and produced in Southern Nevada. Three college showcases were produced by students from UNLV, CSN and NSC, showing a collection of short films. We are so proud of our young filmmakers and look forward to see their work every year. 

There were many outstanding film shown and one in particular was California Dreams, a semi documentary about five individuals who are pursuing their life time dreams, directed by Mike Ott. The film portraits real people and their Hollywood dreams.
