LA LA Land to screen at the AFI Fest 2016

LA LA Land
The American Film Institute (AFI) has announced that LA LA Land will screen as a Centerpiece Gala at AFI FEST 2016 presented by Audi. The film from Lionsgate's Summit Entertainment label is directed by Academy Award nominee Damien Chazelle and stars Academy Award nominees Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. It will screen on Tuesday, November 15, at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California.
LA LA Land tells the story of Mia (Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern-day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.
Chazelle fully embraces the glamour of the classic Hollywood musical with a modern flair for his new film LA LA LAND, which, like many of the best musicals ever made, is also about Hollywood itself. Ryan Gosling is a principled and penniless jazz pianist whose life intersects with Emma Stone as a would-be starlet washed upon the shores of Tinseltown rejection. As they navigate the highs and lows of the "City of Stars" (referencing one of the film's catchiest songs), the beats of these two lonely hearts begin to sync as one.
AFI FEST takes place November 10–17, 2016. Screenings, Galas and other events will be held at the TCL Chinese Theatre, the TCL Chinese 6 Theatres, the Egyptian Theatre and The Hollywood Roosevelt.
For the 13th consecutive year, AFI FEST will showcase the very best in global cinema thanks to the visionary support of presenting sponsor Audi.
