The 2011 debut of the L.E.S. Film Festival was a bit low-key, but it ended massively with a screening of the thrilling, buzzed-about documentary Catfish. By its second year, word on this film fest, with A-list attendees like Willem Dafoe and Susan Sarandon, was out. This year, it gets even better, with a block party and drive-in movie night on June 16; the world premiere of i hate myself :), a documentary by Joanna Arnow that follows her relationship with her poet-provocateur partner, James Kepple; and a program of short films on “Mind F*ck Night” (June 15). It wraps on June 23 with a screening of the winning feature film at Sunshine Cinema.
Mondays-Sundays, noon. Starts: June 13. Continues through June 23, 2013
