News, Views, Updates and More about the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival
Tuesday, April 5, 2011
Like crocuses popping up in Spring, it's the return of an annual tradition at FLEFF: a panel of entertainment industry insiders sharing the inside scoop.
Directors, screenwriters, distributors, and global innovators tell their stories of how they got their breaks. And they also reveal how YOU can break into the industry, from Hollywood, to indiewood, and to all the other exciting emerging zones of global media worlds.
Moderated, with his usual good cheer and elan, by FLEFF advisory board member and TVR faculty member Steve Gordon, formerly of Viacom.
Friday, April 15
How to Get Your Break
Moderated by Steve Gordon, featuring
Rodrigo Bellott (Even the Rain and IC alum)
Rodrigo Brandao (Kino Lorber Films and IC alum)
Karin Chien (dgenerate films)
Tina Mabry (Mississippi Damned)
