La Jolla Fashion Film Festival
07/26/12 - 07/28/12
The world’s top fashion film professionals will come together for three days of screenings at the Museum of Contemporary Art La Jolla, after-parties, press receptions, seminars, panels, and networking events. This elite group of filmmakers will be joined by two of Hollywood’s insiders, Sydney Levine and Peter Belsito, who spend most of their time speaking and lecturing on the international film festival 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 indispensable.”
Levine and Belsito 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 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.
