MALIBU FILM FESTIVAL 2020 PREMIERES SATURDAY FEBRUARY 15

(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 Filmmaker Cocktail Reception.

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

Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses” will close the Malibu Film Festival, taking

“The

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 Malibu Film Festival 2020 will wrap up with a Filmmaker Cocktail Reception sponsored by Golden Road Brewery and Tito’s Vodka.
