Director Lisa Cholodenko

Lisa Cholodenko, the director of The Kids Are All Right, Laurel Canyon, and High Art, has been named the guest director of the Los Angeles Film Festival (June 11-19). In a statement, LAFF director Stephanie Allain said that the selection of Cholodenko for the position "exemplifies our mission of supporting artists who are diverse, innovative, and have a unique point of view." 

Previous LAFF guest directors have included David O. Russell, Kathryn Bigelow and Alfonso Cuaron.

Cholodenko is currently at work on Olive Kitteridge, an HBO miniseries adapted from Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about an abrasive math teacher and the small Maine town around her.
