Los Angeles: Brits in LA Hosts L.A.'s 4th Annual Toscars

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) -

WHEN: Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 7:30pm

WHERE: Laemmle's Sunset 5 Theatre, 8000 W Sunset Blvd.

Media Check-in at 7pm.

The Fourth Annual Toscars showcases a collection of short films which parody the Oscar-nominated films for this year. These films are professionally shot, scored, and edited by the actors in Brits in LA, most of whom have worked in both Britain and America.

The screening of the films will be followed by an awards show at the XIV Restaurant hosted by Candis Cayne, a choreographer best known for the ABC series Dirty Sexy Money. This show, aimed to parallel the Razzies, can best be described as both outlandish and outrageous. Awards will be presented for the Best Film, the Best Whacktor, the Best Whactress, the Best Costumes, and the Best Technically Executed Film.

There will also be an after party on the patio of the restaurant.

Brits in LA was established in 2007 as a mixer for British Ex-pats, which soon became much more. Brits in LA has helped shape the British Community in Los Angeles. They answer questions and give free advice on all subjects, from Visas and green-cards to Housing, taxes and where to find the cheapest car rentals. Brits in LA finds it important to continue to grow and help promote British companies and brands that are moving stateside.

This year the Toscars will be sponsored by Mike Sullivan's Volkswagen of Santa Monica.
