Not currently active as an annual event the Silver Lake Film Festival was established to provide a showcase for independent film in Los Angeles. It was created to specifically address the lack of opportunity for independent narrative features and documentaries, as well as short films, to be seen by audiences in movie theaters. In addition to its annual festival, the organization presented a monthly screening of short films and a variety of media arts and related arts programming throughout the year.
At the 2007 festival, 270 films were screened; honored indie film luminaries Parker Posey, Hal Hartley, Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris, and music icons John Doe, Keith Morris, and Alice Bag; showcased the Los Angeles premiere of Hartley's new film "Faye Grim"; presented an array of special programs, including the eco-flagship Sustainable L.A., Cuban music documentaries, erotica, independent Indian cinema, and Conspiracy Theories; celebrated the indie music scene in a series of live concerts that featured the legendary Circle Jerks; and paid tribute to Silver Lake's silent film heritage with the classic "Beyond the Rocks", starring Rudolph Valentino and Gloria Swanson. Not to mention presenting dozens of cutting-edge art and other entertainment events and parties, parties, parties.
