As Guest Director, Hanson has programmed a special sidebar of films for the Festival that have inspired his work: John Ford’s
“The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” and Samuel Fuller’s “The Naked Kiss.” The screening ofFord’s “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance” will be followed by a Q&A with Hanson.

 In addition, Hanson will attend the two-day Festival retreat hosted at Skywalker Ranch in Marin County,California.

The Festival also announced that Grammy-winning record producer Pharrell Williams will
serve as this year’s Artist in Residence. In his role as Artist in Residence for the 2007 Los AngelesFilm Festival, Pharrell has programmed a sidebar of films that have inspired his work: “National Lampoons’ Vacation” and Steven Spielberg’s “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.” Pharrell will also participate in a Festival conversation with Elvis Mitchell on Saturday, June 23 at 8:00 p.m. atthe Hammer Museum. This free event, presented in cooperation with the Hammer Museum, is open to the public.

“We’re so excited to have Curtis Hanson as Guest Director and Pharrell Williams as Artist in
Residence at this year’s Festival,” said Rich Raddon, Festival Director. “Curtis Hanson is a world-
class filmmaker with a tremendous body of work and Pharrell Williams is a creative force in themusic industry. We are proud to honor them at this year’s Festival.”

Curtis Hanson (Director/Writer/Producer) previously directed, co-wrote and produced thecrime drama “L.A. Confidential,” which was one of the most honored films of 1997. The film
received nine Academy Award nominations, including three for Hanson in the categories of BestDirector, Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay, the last of which he won. “L.A. Confidential”

also brought Hanson a Directors Guild of America Award nomination; two Golden Globe
nominations for Best Director and Best Screenplay; the Writers Guild of America Award for BestAdapted Screenplay; two BAFTA Award nominations for Best Film and Best Screenplay; andnumerous critics groups’ awards for both Best Director and Best Screenplay.

Hanson more recently directed and produced “Lucky You,” “In Her Shoes,”
“Wonder Boys,” and “8 Mile.” The latter two films won Oscars for Best Original Song, Bob Dylan’s“Things Have Changed,” and Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”

Hanson’s other directing credits include “The River Wild,” “The Hand That Rocks theCradle,” “Bad Influence,” and “The Bedroom Window,” which he also wrote. A noted championof film preservation, Hanson has served as the Chairman of the UCLA Film and Television Archivesince 1999. He was the first recipient of the Film Preservation Award bestowed by theFilm Foundation and the Directors Guild of America in 2003.

Pharrell Williams is half of the beat-making duo The Neptunes. He stormed the main stage,
lending his voice to create infectious choruses and stealing scenes in the music videos of clientswho are pop and hip hop’s brightest lights: Gwen Stefani, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears,
Usher, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z, Mariah Carey and Ludacris. All the hard work won Williams and his
Neptunes partner Chad Hugo a Grammy of their own — the 2003 Producer of the Year, Non-
Classical award.

Williams is not only a producer, however. He’s also a rock star. With Hugo and childhoodfriend Shae Thornton, he formed the alternative rock trio N.E.R.D. and proceeded to release twoplatinum albums. His résumé doesn’t end there. Williams released a solo single, “Frontin’,” on a2003 Neptunes compilation, and in 2006 released his long-anticipated solo debut, with his album InMy Mind to be released on Interscope-distributed Star Trak Records.

Past Guest Directors have included Alfonso Cuaron, Chen Kaige, Mira Nair, Sydney Pollack,
and George Lucas. Past Artists in Residence have included The RZA, Neil Young, and Danger
Mouse. The Festival is proud to add Curtis Hanson and Pharrell Williams to this list of immenselytalented and deserving artists.
