The lineup for what organizers advertise as "America's first conservative film festival...and there's nothing Michael Moore can do about it" is firming up. From today's press release:
HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oscar(C) Nominated writer Lionel Chetwynd ("Ike: Countdown to D-Day"), talk show hosts Michael Medved and Larry Elder, producer Doug Urbanski, ("The Contender"), and actress Morgan Brittany will headline the 2004 Liberty Film Festival, a major counter-offensive to the Hollywood left and Michael Moore's election-year assault on President Bush and the Iraq war. The Liberty Film Festival will be the first openly conservative film festival in the nation -- supporting the War on Terror, as well as traditional American values of free speech, patriotism, and religious freedom. The festival will be held Oct. 1st-3rd at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood.
Among films to be screened are Larry Elder's debut film "Michael & Me," Mike Wilson's hotly anticipated "Michael Moore Hates America," the explosive "WMD" by Kurdish/Iraqi director Jano Rosebiani, the Ann Coulter documentary "Is It True What They Say About Ann?" (by Elinor Burkett and Patrick Wright), Roger Aronoff's compelling "Confronting Iraq," Tim Chey's groundbreaking "Impact: 'The Passion of the Christ,'" Lionel Chetwynd's controversial "DC 9/11: Time of Crisis" (Showtime), and the edgy new suspense thriller "Terminal Island" (by Jason Apuzzo & Govindini Murty).
