Fashion's freshest event attracts worldwide attention and top professionals
This July 26-28, 2012 will see the world's top fashion film professionals come together for 3 days of screenings, after parties, press receptions, seminars & panels, and networking events. This elite group of filmmakers will now be joined by two of Hollywood's insiders, Sydney Levine and Peter Belsito.
Sydney and Peter spend most of their time speaking and lecturing on the international film festival circuit. Some of their friends and endorsers are: Jérôme Paillard, Directeur Délégué, Cannes Marché du Film; Rajendra Roy, Head of Museum of Modern Art NYC / MOMA Film Program; Bob Berney formerly of Picturehouse; Trevor Groth, Senior Programmer, Sundance Film Festival; Paul Federbush (formerly of Warner Bros) now head of Red Flag Releasing with former Warners Independent publicist Laura Kim; Richard Lorber of Kino Lorber Films; David Skinner and Tom Gorai of Shadowcatcher Entertainment; Wieland Speck, Senior Programmer of Berlinale; and Wendy Lidell, Founder and President of International Film Circuit.
Todd McCarthy, Senior Film Critic of The Hollywood Reporter says:
“Sydney Levine and Peter Belsito have been on the front lines of the American independent film scene before the Sundance Film Festival and any of the current indie companies even existed, and they continue to know what's going on before anyone else does. The web they cast is wide, their contacts are unparalleled, their stature enormous, their services indispensible.”
Peter and Sydney will be presenting at the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival on one of the most important skills for any director or producer: Pitching as a Business Skill. Film creation is more collaborative than ever, and the ability to successfully convey your ideas to a supporting or sponsoring party is absolutely essential for a director's success. Filmmakers at all levels of achievement will learn crucial new skills in this important seminar.
A Q&A following the seminar will allow participants to additionally personalize their experience.
