Mormon is Out at Los Angeles Film Festival

Posted on 25 November 2008 by admin

Richard Raddon, the Mormon director of the LA Film Festival, has resigned from his job following the uproar of controversy around his $1500 donation to the Yes on 8 campaign.

The donation came to light lmost two weeks ago, a revelation that caused Raddon to tender his resignation to Film Independent. At the time, the board did not accept Raddon’s offer, though the move didn’t quite stem the debate over Raddon’s future and whether a potential boycott would devastate the festival when it returns next summer.

Equality California estimates that Mormons donated as much as $20 million to Prop. 8, while the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic fraternal group, gave $1.25 million to the effort and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, $200,000.
