The festival's slate of international and USA-made films includes the world premiere of earthquake relief documentary SEVEN DAYS IN NEPAL from executive producer D.A. Pennebaker (the legendary filmmaker of Don't Look Back, Monterrey Pop and The War Room), Ethan Hawke as troubled jazz legend Chet Baker in BORN TO BE BLUE, and THE WRONG LIGHT about a filmmakers' journey to document a non-profit in Thailand dedicated to helping victims of sex trafficking among others.
In addition, this year's festival boasts a brand new category: Southern Perspectives.
Southern Perspectives is a regionally-focused slate that will include nearly a dozen movies telling a wide range of narratives from the American South-from the erosion of small town culture with BOGALUSA CHARM, to AFTER THE SPILL, a documentary exposing the details of BP's Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
LIFF 2016 also is proud to showcase an impressive Women and Film category that includes 17 titles about women or directed by women.
