Film Festival Flix Katherine Randolph ADULTHOOD www.nohoartsdistrict.com

ADULTHOOD, written and directed by Katherine Randolph, is an ensemble comedy about a group of friends on the brink of their thirties, clumsily grappling with impending adulthood, finding love and humor amid the chaos of life.

It’s been ten years since college, and USC buddies Chris, Mark, Walt, and Jake have seen less and less of each other. But when war journalist Mark misses a flight connection and finds himself in Los Angeles for the night, he rounds up the group for a barbeque that re-ignites friendship and romance.

When Mark goes missing the following week while on assignment in Pakistan, each of the friends begin to question their choices, relationships and ultimately the lives they’re living. Some bonds break under the pressure of examination, while others grow stronger as they cast aside their ideas about themselves and each other. While waiting for news of Mark, they agree to escort the dying Uncle Al to Palm Springs, where he believes an alien spaceship is coming to pick him up. The trip inevitably spins out of control as the fabric of little white lies that hold their lives together starts to weaken, forcing them to change and confront their fear of adulthood.

Adventure climber Leo Houlding and film maker Alastair Lee are back with another sumptuous production of truly epic proportions. This time Leo (UK) and fellow climbers Sean Leary (USA) and Jason Pickles (Salford) head deep into the Amazon in an attempt to make the first ascent of the east face of the remote tepuy; Cerro Autana.

The action beings with a covert journey via military check-points and secret ports through Amazonas State. Our team of clandestine climbers disguised as tourists travel down the Orinoco River to the remote village of Ceguera where they make a traumatic psychotropic visit to the local Shaman to gain access to the sacred mountain.

From here sweltering humidity, porter chaos and an assortment of jungle nastiest are just a part of this spectacular journey of self-discovery and big wall hunting. Follow our team of redoubtable characters as they find their way up the jungle infested rock face as they are amazed not only at the climbing but a luxury wall camp in the incredible Autana Cave system just below the summit of the tepuy (highest elevated cave system in the world).

An adventure unlike any other, adventure film making takes another step into the unknown with superb results. Original, experimental, entertaining and visually stunning, Posing Productions presents; Autana.

Film Festival Flix AUTANA www.nohoartsdistrict.com

Posing Productions is a dynamic team of climbing creatives breaking free from the cliched and predictable, aspiring to the unusual and adventurous. We love the whole outdoor climbing thang so much we combine the spectacular with humor, action with innovation, breathing heart and soul into all of our work. There are also dvds sold on this site not produced by Posing Productions, these are carefully selected titles by film makers that inspire us. You can be sure any of the films found on this site have that special something that sets them apart.

The Posing Productions website is primarily here to showcase and provide a point of sale for the photographic and film making talents of Alastair Lee who's collaborations with talented animators and cameramen like David Halsted and David Reeves have produced a string of successful films. The break through act was in 2004 when Alastair teamed up with Dave Halsted to produce Twice Upon a Time in Bolivia which has now been a finalist at over a dozen international mountain film festivals and won six top awards. Their next film Storms an experimental climbing comedy scooped two gongs at the Kendal Mountain Film Festival 2005. In 2006 they produced another successful venture with the climbing blockbuster Set in Stone which ran off with 'Best Climbing Film' and the 'People's Choice' at the Kendal Mountain Film Festival, its also picked up a couple of awards in the States and is a must at any mountain film festival line up. In 2007 Alastair went solo as Dave's animation career took off, to produce PSYCHE which picked up two awards at Kendal 2007, including Best Adventure Film and the People's Choice Award and has won a further 7 awards around the globe.

Alastair is now well established as one of the UK's leading adventure film makers since his 2008 release On Sight which has seen rave reviews and won the prestigious Grand Prize and Best Climbing film at the 2008 Kendal Mountain Film Festival. In 2009 Alastair teamed up with top climber Leo Houlding on his most ambitious film to date; The Asgard Project which has won 22 international awards and was broadcast on Discovery Channel's freeview channel 'Quest'. A further two epics have been produced with Leo; Autana (2012) and most recently The Last Great Climb which is scooping up gongs around the globe and is being broadcast on National Geographic US in July 2014.


No passport required. Film Festival Flix brings the films from festivals around the world right to North Hollywood

Film Festival Flix www.nohoartsdistict.com

Yep. We do film in the NoHo Arts District, too. If you check the NoHo Calendar or drive past Laemmle Theaters, you’ll see many film premieres but you will also see folks with cameras on the streets of North Hollywood making movies. When we met the folks at Film Festival Flix, we had to share with our readers what they bring to the neighborhood, literally and figuratively. Film Festival Flix brings the movies from the film festivals to us here in North Hollywood. Thank you!

So is Film Festival Flix a film festival?
Film Festival Flix has flipped the old distribution model to accommodate changing times and shifting viewer habits. In past years, distributors have used the internet to drive audiences to theaters. Film Festival Flix is using theatrical openings and a monthly nationwide theatrical premiere series to drive audiences to its virtual studio and distribution channels. And it’s working. Film Festival Flix’s monthly theatrical event series offers VIP passes, Q&A’s with filmmakers and social interaction with like-minded cinephiles in the comfort of local towns and cities nationwide.

Why did you choose the NoHo Arts District for your monthly events?
Film Festival Flix has found the most supportive and artistic community we can think of in the NoHo Arts District. We love working with the ultimate indie film house the Laemmle NoHo 7, Michael Roud Photography who hosts our pre-event Cocktail Party and of course The Eclectic - our stellar host for our After-Party.

How does Film Festival Flix help indie filmmakers?
One of our missions is to continue the conversation between filmmakers and their audiences. Film Festival Flix is a distribution platform for indie filmmakers. Each of our films has won awards and gained recognition on the film festival circuit and we are bringing these artists' work directly to you via theatrical release, online streaming and downloading on multiple platforms: FilmFestivalFlix.com, Amazon, iTunes, Netflix, etc; Cable Video On Demand, DVD sales and beyond. Our artists travel with their films to our live Film Festival Flix events across the country, inviting the true one-to-one connection between a filmmaker and their audience. In the end, many of our social conversations wouldn't exist without the lens filmmakers provide and we believe in supporting them.”

The next story is about a clergyman whose wallet and documents have been stolen and follows him as he tries to get the documents back from the thief. The last story is of an elderly couple alone in a building whose TV has broken and they are afraid of opening the door for the young repairman who has come to help them.
