California Today: With ‘Blindspotting,’ Oakland’s Film Scene Takes Center Stage

Long before he won a Tony Award for “Hamilton,” Daveed Diggs was living in Oakland — his hometown — and watching in alarm as white tech-industry workers moved in, driving up rents and displacing black residents. Around the same time in 2009, a white officer fatally shot an unarmed black man in the back three blocks from Mr. Diggs’s apartment. (The New York Times)

LA Film Festival Unveils Diverse Competition Slate

The LA Film Festival has placed a heavy emphasis on diversity in its competition film slate, with 42% of the films directed by women and 39% helmed by people of color.

The 24th edition of the festival is also positioning itself as an event for unveiling lesser-known talent. It will take place Sept. 20-28 as it moves from its traditional June slot to the fall awards season. (Variety)

MoviePass shook up the film industry. Now it looks like the end is near.

MoviePass was once the fastest rising star in Hollywood. The New York-based service promised to revolutionize the cinema business by offering something multiplexes have long resisted: steep discounts on the price of movie tickets.

Consumers could watch a movie a day for about $10 a month — less than the average price of a movie ticket in Los Angeles. (LA Times)
