One of the most Hollywood events of the summer, the Hollyshorts Film Festival is a week and a half of networking events, Q&A's with filmmakers and screenings of short films produced around the world. The 13th annual fest screenings will be held at the TCL Chinese 6 (that's the multiplex behind the famous one), and promises numerous 40-minute films (or less) from early afternoon to midnight. You can also snag tickets to the film conference at the Roosevelt Hotel on select days to hear from keynote speakers. And, of course, such an event wouldn't be complete without opportunities to meet people in the industry over drinks. The all-access badge sets you back $600, but it could be worth it for those planning to make the most of the festival, with its opening night and afterparty, film screenings, panel conferences and awards ceremony. If you'd rather just go for a single program, check the website for a full daily schedule, and scope out the trailers beforehand here.
