The festival lineup includes an education outreach program May 2 and the film “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.” On May 3, festival-goers can view “The Thief and the Dogs.”            

A Hollywood Nostalgia Tribute gala reception is set for May 4, featuring the film “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” with actress Mitzi Gaynor.            

On May 5, festival-goers can attend “On Location: The Los Angeles Video Project” at 1 p.m., and see “Brothers on the Line,” at 3:30 p.m.
