In continuing its program of recognizing outstanding actors, the Ojai Film Festival presents An Evening with Sally Kellerman on June 3 from 4 to 8 pm at the Ojai Art Center. The event will include a screening of her iconic film “MASH.” Her 60-year career in film, TV and voice-over reflects her versatility as a performer. The Ojai Film Festival is delighted to present the satirical black comedy that brought her nominations for an Academy Award and Golden Globe.

Sally’s monumental break came via director Robert Altman when he hired her, and she created a dusky-voiced sensation out of the aggressively irritating character Major Margaret. Both she and the film were a spectacular success. She went on to do several more Altman classics “Brewster McCloud” and “Welcome to LA.” Her last film was in 2011.

Everyone is welcome to come to this delightful evening of film and conversation. Advance tickets are $25 online or $30 at the door. Visit www.OjaiFilmFestival.com to purchase.
