Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers


Ron Gilbert

I am now living in the heart of the film industry and have been involved in the film and theates industry for almost 50 years.I started out in New York City which was where the acting scene at the Actors Studio (I am a lifetime member) included Robert DeNiro,Dustin Hoffman ,Al Pacino,Robert Duval and other name actors like Martin Landau ,Rod Steiger,Shelley Winters,Paul Newman,Ben Gazzara and the list goes on. That was then and the picture has changed. A stage play in New York names a name Hollywood actor to make a profit. The independent film scene has also changed. Steven Soderbergh commented on that recently at the San Francisco International Film Festival and major companies have taken over the studios.

I still work as an actor in commercials,TV and mostly independent films. I ahve worked with the major directors like Francis Ford Coppola,Sydney Lumet, and  Bryan Singer whom I met on his first feature and the relationship is same even now.

Currently I can be seen on reruns,commercials,short films and indie films.

In addition as a member of the Actors Studio I have taught at Strasberg Institute and Theatre of Arts and created 2 acting academies in Italy and have done workshops in London and other cities.the I have been a judge on many film festivals and worked with Independent Film Projects West as a producer on the feature film program and the Spirit Awards.


Film Festivals in Hollywood

Hollywood in June was jammed with three film festivals  Hollywood. The 10th LA Greek Festival at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood made you feel like you are in Greece and the films were very personal, and the stories were heartfelt.

Then in June, the  LA Film Festival arrived at the Arclight in Hollywood with the feature Lowriders and many other films with recognizable names and the premiere of Conjuring 2 which is the film to see Culver City Studios were used for the receptions and panels along with the Arclight theater for screenings.Many panels and receptions were available for the audience and if you were a member of Film Independent you received a discount.

The most independent film festival, Dances with Films celebrated the 19th anniversary  in Hollywood close to the footprints and handprints of the stars at the TLC Chinese Theater with the most world premieres, and the ambiance was joyful like going to a high school reunion. Everyone was smiling and seeing old friends, and the red carpet is the longest one. Filmmaker panels and one about distribution was the most important.

The  7th New Media Film Festival slipped in right after the LA Greek Film festival closed, and their venue was at the Landmark Theater in Westwood with very indie films along with panels and a shorts program.

The next step and the most important issue for filmmakers are finding a distributor for your film.
