Malibu Film Festival to Feature Local Films
The 17th annual Malibu International Film Festival takes place this Saturday, Nov. 5, at the Malibu Civic Theater at City Hall. Several of the 24 films screening during the festival showcase local talent.
The festival opens with Malibu filmmaker Chelo Alvarez-Stehle’s feature documentary “Sands of Silence: Waves of Courage,” an exposé on global trafficking and sexual exploitation, as well as a celebration of the strength and courage of trafficking survivors, that took nearly eight years to complete.
