19TH MALIBU FILM FESTIVAL
FEBRUARY 15, 2020
(MALIBU, CA) The 19th Malibu Film Festival returns to Malibu on Saturday February 15th with a curated selection of thirteen well crafted, visually profound new and award winning films premiering and screening at Malibu Civic Theater followed by the Awards Cocktail Reception hosted by Casa Escobar Malibu.
The 2020 Malibu Film Festival opens with the festival premiere of “Johnny Strange: Born to Fly” a feature documentary from Malibu local award-winning filmmakers John Watkins and Eamon Harrington, telling the story of 23 year old adventurer Johnny Strange, who at 17 was the youngest person to climb the tallest mountain in all 7 continents before becoming one of the world’s elite BASE jumpers.
Benjamin Pollack’s short documentary “Out of Malibu” and Rebecca Carpenter’s short documentary “The Game Was On” will screen at Malibu Festival sharing a few Malibu locals experiences fighting the Woolsey Fire and in some cases losing everything only to find they have much more to loose. This screening is free to attend while tickets are available at www.malibufilmfestival.eventbrite.com
Matt Bass’s feature documentary “SK8FACE” about the history and evolution of skateboard art and culture will hold its world premiere at Malibu Film Festival sponsored by Juice Magazine.
Matthew Mendenhall’s feature documentary “Greetings From Unicorn California” will hold its world premiere at Malibu Film Festival, providing a unique behind-the-scenes journey of The Chris Robinson Brotherhood. Affectionately known as the CRB, Chris Robinson (legendary front man and founding member of the hugely successful rock band The Black Crowes), has cultivated a group of immensely talented musicians focused on bringing their independent Farm-to-Table, psychedelic project to the masses. Through the lens of their longtime friend, discover the vulnerable moments sketching out original material and the diverse individuality of each musician as they take their California Space Boogie across the country in this 6+ year trip of Vibration, Love and Light.
The Los Angeles premiere of Steven Latham’s feature documentary “The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses” will close the Malibu Film Festival, taking audiences on an odyssey throughout America to places few people have seen or even know about. There are more than 80,000 wild horses on our federal lands and more than 50,000 in holding facilities. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Philipps says, “The wild horse is so ingrained in the American imagination that even for those who have never seen one know what it stands for: fierce independence, unbridled freedom, the bedrock ideals of the nation. From car ads to high school mascots, the wild horse – popularly known as the mustang – is the enduring icon of America. But in modern times it has become entangled in controversy and bureaucracy, and now its future is in question.” Whether you are a horse person or not, this film will make you fall in love with America all over again.
The 19th Malibu Film Festival will wrap up in style with the Awards Cocktail Reception hosted by Casa Escobar Malibu sponsored by Golden Road Brewery and Tito’s Vodka. Ticket includes select vegetarian appetizers, craft beer, signature cocktails and live entertainment.
