Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

The Lancaster Area Film Festival is a filmmaker’s film festival hosted by 81st Street Productions and Stunod Pictures Entertainment. Organized by 81st Street Production’s Bryan M. Schaefer, Mark Pennell and Stunod Pictures Entertainment’s Jason Prugar. The three conceived the idea for the film festival while attending another film festival. The first ideas about how to put together the festival indicated that it would be held outside in the park, kind of drive in movie style, but after careful consideration it was decided that a better festival could be planed at an indoor site. (at least for the first few years) Lancaster was chosen, not only because it is the hometown of both Bryan and Mark but also because it has been devoid of any amateur film events over the past years. That along with a current boom in the Arts and the high rate of tourist traffic to the area made Lancaster an ideal choice for the festival. This will add one more fun event for the community to attend.
