BeschreibungA book-length, journalistic account of all the superficial glitz that we associate with film festivals, along with an account of the serious business that goes on there, and of the politics behind the glamor. There have been books about individual festivals, but never anything as comprehensive as this.

PortraitKenneth Turan is film critic for the Los Angeles Times and a frequent contributor to National Public Radio's Morning Edition. He is director of the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes and the co-author of Call Me Anna: The Autobiography of Patty Duke (1987).
