The 2019 Las Vegas Film Festival is scheduled to take place April 28 through May 5. Additionally, Zappos has signed on as a presenting sponsor of the eight-day Festival. While the majority of the Festival will take place in venues around Downtown Las Vegas, some events will be held at the Brenden Theatres and Palms Casino Resort, which has served as home to the Festival for the past two years.
“We are thrilled to be working with Zappos, and that we are able to move the majority of the Festival back to Downtown Las Vegas, while still hosting some events at Brenden Theatres and the Palms,” said Las Vegas Film Festival President Milo Kostelecky. “Additionally, moving the Festival to earlier in the year will allow us to host more events in outdoor venues downtown, enabling us to enjoy the beautiful spring weather in Las Vegas.”
“The Las Vegas Film Festival has become a FUNdamental part of the downtown community, emphasis on ‘fun,’ and at Zappos, we look forward to it every year,” said Tyler Williams, Director of Brand Experience at Zappos. “As a longtime supporter of the Festival, we’re passionate about its mission of promoting and encouraging local filmmakers to think outside the box, and we’re all about pushing creative boundaries!”
Festival leadership will continue to include Mike Plante (Captain of Strategy), Milo Kostelecky (President), Robin Greenspun (CineVegas President) and West McDowell (Programming Director).
