The Middleburg Film Festival has booked “La La Land,” starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, as the centerpiece of this year’s three-day event.
“La La Land” director Damien Chazelle will appear at the Saturday, Oct. 22, screening. No news yet on whether the stars of the musical romance film will make an appearance in Middleburg. The movie opened the Venice Film Festival, where Stone won the Best Actress award, and Lionsgate has announced it arrive in theaters in the U.S. on Dec. 2.
Middleburg Film Festival runs Oct. 20-23 and features screenings at Salamander Resort & Spa and other sites throughout the western Loudoun town. The festival was founded four years ago by Sheila Johnson, co-founder of BET and CEO of Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg.
“I want to personally invite you to join me Oct. 20-23, 2016, to see some wonderful films in a truly spectacular setting,” Johnson states on the festival’s website. “The Middleburg Film Festival is an exciting opportunity to celebrate two of my favorite things by bringing the best in independent film right here to the town I love.”
