Sarah and Urs Baur are friends of mine that eschewed city life a dozen years ago and moved to Topanga Canyon, a rustic community north of Los Angeles that could be described as Laurel Canyon without the angst. They love all things film and are filmmakers themselves.
Eight years ago, they put out a call for entries, rented a projector and invited a few hundred friends over for a backyard screening and the Topanga Film Festival, was born. Since then, the TFF has evolved to be a dynamic presence that brings together local creative professionals and other like-minded film seekers and has been steadily garnering attention from the broader film community.
TFF is now sponsoring a FINAL FRIDAYs Screening Series at the Topanga Library in an intimate venue followed by a Q & A with the filmmaker. The event series kicks off on Friday, April 27th at 7:30pm with Beyond Grace, a feature documentary directed by Sara Baur-Harding & Vijayalakshmi. The event is free but owing to the scale of the venue, it is recommended that you reserve a seat: email@example.com
