Apr 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from Hollywood Film Festival

    HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Carlos de Abreu, festival
 founder, announces the call for entries for the 5th Annual Hollywood Film
 Festival(R) and Hollywood Movie Awards(R).
     If you have a GREAT idea, story, script, book or film, NOW you can tap
 into the $500 MILLION U.S. DOLLARS spent yearly in Hollywood acquiring and
 developing projects.
     "The Festival is an international competitive event committed to bridging
 the gap between Hollywood and independent filmmakers.  It will take place
 August 2 to 6, 2001, and the venues include the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel,
 Paramount Studios, Raleigh Studios and Beverly Hilton Hotel," he announced.
     "Because of our finalist films' success -- acquisitions by HBO, Indican
 Pictures, Miramax, Seventh Art Releasing and Starz among others we have
 expanded our programming, so that more filmmakers can have better
 opportunities.  This year's film competition -- Hollywood Discovery Awards --
 will include Showcases in Digital Cinema, European Cinema, Latin Cinema and
 Online Cinema," de Abreu said.
     Last year, over 100 Hollywood professionals participated in the Hollywood
 Film Conference and the attendance at the conference, Hollywood Film
 Screenings, and Hollywood Movie Awards Gala ceremony was well over 15,000.
 The audience consisted of both the trade and the public at large and the Gala
 event was held before a standing-room-only audience of over 1,200 Hollywood
 Film Festival attendees at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  Special honors went to
 Angelina Jolie and Russell Crowe -- Hollywood Actress and Actor of the Year
 Awards  -- legendary actors Richard Dreyfuss and Morgan Freeman for their
 contributions to the art of film, and to such acclaimed filmmakers as Richard
 Donner, Jonathan Krane, Mace Neufeld, Thelma Schoonmaker, Michael Kamen, Henry
 Bumstead, songwriter Kenny Loggins and casting director Mike Fenton.
     The Hollywood Movie Awards Gala ceremony was truly an extraordinary
 Hollywood moment.  Celebrities and Hollywood notables who attended the 6 day-
 long fest included Robert Altman, Anne Archer, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges,
 Francis Ford Coppola, Lauren Shuler Donner, Hector Elizondo, Frances Fisher,
 Melora Hardyn, Arthur Hiller, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Arnold Kopelson, Ray Liotta,
 Michael Mann, Kelly Preston, Lynn Redgrave, Bob Shaye, Gene Simmons, John
 Travolta, and James Woods among others.  Attendees were treated to the music
 of Johnny Crawford and the event was hosted by Nancy O'Dell.
