LA Film Fest 2015 - 'More Film Reviews'
Well, it looks like this year’s 'Los Angeles Film Fest' (June 10-18 at LA Live in Downtown Los Angeles – go to www.lafilmfest.com for more details!) is turning out to be one great movie going event.

We’re certainly not stopping now, keeping the review row boat moving with even more encapsulated opinions below – a total of three feature films and a gaggle of shorts as well. The high, the low and the ‘avoid like the plague’ fare all get their day below!

Etheria Film Night - 'Shevenge' Director Amber Benson Talks Fema
Most know the vivacious Amber Benson from her work as Tara Maclay in the Joss Whedon penned TV show "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (or those in the cinematic know how like me from the 5-star indie "Dust Up!"), but did you know Amber was also a horror movie fan?

Amber Benson won fans' hearts as the dearly departed Tara Maclay on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Looking beyond Buffy, however, she's also a talented hyphenate: actress, director, writer. BFTV snagged a few minutes with Amber at this year's San Diego Comic-Con to find out about her myriad of current projects and enduring place in pop culture.

"I get overwhelmed by it all!" Amber told us with a laugh. "I have a new series of books for Penguin; the first book's called The Witches of Echo Park. That'll be out next year. I'm doing a film with Neil Gaiman called Blood Kiss, that we did a Kickstart...

Interview: 'Dust Up' Director Ward Roberts On Money Shots, Cool Posters And Taking Risks

Dust Up
Nothing says movie fun like a little gritty exploitation. Last year, fans of old school grindhouse fare got a shot of adrenaline with the Rutger Hauer vehicle "Hobo With a Shotgun." This year filmmaker Ward Roberts has taken things up a notch with all the sex, violence, blood, gore and cool eye patches fans can take in his ode to all things outrageous entitled "Dust Up." The film tells the story a one-eyed soldier who, along with his faithful Indian pal, decides to protect an ailing husband and wife from a local gangster and find themselves in a heap of trouble. Not for the faint of hea...
