It’s official! The biggest film event of 2012 in Los Angeles will take place on August 26 when documentary filmmaker Jeff Krulik will present a selection of his favorite short films at the 3rd annual Everything Is Festival.

Cranking out cult hits since the early ’80s, the Maryland-based Krulik will be making a rare sojourn out to the West Coast for this incredibly special event. As a master storyteller, you won’t want to miss this special live presentation. Nobody spins great yarns about wild adventures better than Jeff Krulik. Nobody!

Beginning with the runaway cult hit Heavy Metal Parking Lot, which he co-produced and co-directed with his partner John Heyn, Jeff Krulik has been making wonderfully quirky documentaries for over thirty years. He frequently shines a spotlight on eccentric personalities and oddball cultural phenomena in films such as Ernest Borgnine on the Bus, Mr. Blassie Goes to Hollywood, I Created Lancelot Link, Obsessed with Jews and The Legend of Merv Conn. He’s also capitalized on the “parking lot” theme by making several sequels, focusing on fans of Neil Diamond, Harry Potter and others.

Most recently he directed another documentary about ’80s Maryland rockers called Heavy Metal Picnic, which is now available on DVD.

Jeff Krulik is truly a national treasure and if you are even remotely near Los Angeles on Aug. 26, this event is not to be missed!
