HOL­LY­WOOD, NOV. 9-15

The an­nual film fes­ti­val pre­sented by Audi was de­cid­edly scaled down this year when the Thou­sand Oaks shoot­ing and the Cal­i­for­nia wild­fires prompted many of the stu­dios to can­cel ar­rival red car­pets, in­clud­ing those for “Bird Box,” “De­stroyer,” “Wi­d­ows” and the clos­ing-night film “Mary Queen of Scots.” Even so, screen­ings, Q&AS and af­ter-par­ties still took place. In state­ments an­nounc­ing the can­cel­la­tions, stu­dios asked the pub­lic to do­nate to re­lief or­ga­ni­za­tions, in­clud­ing the Amer­i­can Red Cross and the Los An­ge­les Fire De­part­ment Foun­da­tion.
