FILM INDEPENDENT AND NEW LINE CINEMA TO DEBUT THE CONJURING AT THE

LOS ANGELES FILM FESTIVAL ON JUNE 21

LOS ANGELES (June xx, 2013) – Today the Los Angeles Film Festival, presented by Film Independent, in conjunction with Presenting Media Sponsor the Los Angeles Times and Host Partner L.A. LIVE, announced it will debut New Line Cinema’s The Conjuring from filmmaker James Wan (Saw, Insidious) at the 2013 Los Angeles Film Festival. The film, which stars Academy Award® nominee Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, Bates Motel), Patrick Wilson (Insidious), Ron Livingston (Office Space, Adaptation) and Lili Taylor (Hemlock Grove), will screen in two theaters at the Regal Cinema at L.A. LIVE on June 21, first at 10:00 pm in Regal House 11 and 10:30 pm in Regal House 10 with both screenings followed by a Q&A with Wan. The film is set for release on July 19 and is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. For more information on purchasing tickets for this and other Festival events please visit www.lafilmfest.com.

“A classic haunted house story for today's smart sensibilities, we are thrilled Sue Kroll and her team chose the Los Angles Film Festival to debut this gem,” said Festival Director Stephanie Allain. “We know our Festival audiences are going to love this supernatural thriller.”
“Taking inspiration from the case files of two real life ghost hunters, James Wan has crafted a thriller that will definitely get under audiences’ skin,” said Associate Director of Programming Doug Jones. “Creating an atmosphere of dread, one unsettling event at a time, Wan ratchets up the tension until it’s nearly unbearable and delightfully scary.”
Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on the true-life story, The Conjuring tells the tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse.  Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most horrifying case of their lives.
Wan directs from a screenplay by Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes (The Reaping) and is produced by Tony DeRosa-Grund, Peter Safran and Rob Cowan, with Walter Hamada and Dave Neustadter serving as executive producers. Reuniting with the director are members of his Insidious creative team - director of photography John R. Leonetti, editor Kirk Morri, costume designer Kristin M. Burke, composer Joseph Bishara - and his Saw production designer, Julie Berghoff.

Passes are currently on sale to Film Independent members and the general public. In addition to screenings and events, Festival passes provide access to a series of networking receptions and entry to the Filmmaker Lounge, where Festival pass holders can interact with Festival filmmakers and professionals in the film community.
