The Silver Lake Film Festival, which runs through Sept. 18 at various venues with an array of challenging fare, seems exceptionally strong in documentaries this year. A case in point is James Dowell and John Kolomvakis' "Sleep in a Nest of Flames" (Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, Sunday at 10 p.m.), an affectionate and comprehensive portrait of Charles Henri Ford, who died in 1997 at 94, having lived his long life exceptionally well.

"Soldier's Pay," David O. Russell's 35-minute antiwar documentary that Warner Bros. blocked from being included on the DVD re-release of his 1999 film "Three Kings," will be shown Thursday on the closing night of the Silver Lake Film Festival. The film, in which Russell interviews American soldiers about the war in Iraq, was deemed by Warner Bros. to be too political to release in an election year.

Most film festivals today, from Cannes to Sundance to Toronto, are marketing vehicles, where movies tart themselves up, hoping to catch the eye of a film distributor, critic or entertainment reporter. One of the few festivals devoted to discovering movies is the second annual Silver Lake Film Festival, which runs through Sunday right here in our backyard. It's a festival where you won't bump into any starlets or Hollywood agents with all-access passes.

First there was Cannes. Then Toronto and Sundance. And now we have the Silver Lake Film Festival, debuting tonight at the funky and ornate Vista Theater. But this is no red carpet affair. "We couldn't afford one," said Vangie Griego, 37, a documentary film producer and co-founder of the made-on-a-shoestring fest. And there won't be any big-name celebs. At least Griego doesn't expect any. Unlike many of the other 500 film festivals in the world--11 of them in L.A.

Diana SERRA CARY's Hollywood career is atypical of many a child star. Discovered at 20 months and dubbed Baby Peggy, she quickly became a superstar only to be washed up by age 8. At the Silver Lake Film Festival's closing ceremony next Thursday, Cary will be the party's special guest as part of a night celebrating the 80th birthday of the venerable Vista Theatre in Los Feliz. The very first film to play at the theater was a two-reel comedy, "Tips," starring the silent screen child superstar.

Is all publicity good publicity? Well, yes and no, as Mariah Carey will find out when her new album, "Glitter," hits stores Tuesday. Carey, of course, is in well-publicized seclusion (and, according to sources in her camp, seeking care at UCLA Medical Center) to deal with what her spokeswoman describes as emotional distress and exhaustion. The singer's face has been everywhere in recent weeks as her ordeals have been portrayed as sad or bizarre in news and gossip media.
