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.

We are currently shooting this web series

I have 2 award winning  films on the festival circuit American Bred and Courier X

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.

Opening Night of Los
Italia 2011

by Ron Gilbert

The party has started with Italian friends and family for a celebration
which on this occasion is the Los Angeles Italia Film Fashion and Art Festival.
The festival director Pascal Vicedomini who is from Southern Italy
really has a knack for combining Hollywood
and Italy and
today was the day to reminisce about the Legendary Oscar winning producer Dino
De Laurentiis and honoring him in a way that was well deserved. The audience
was treated to  2 of the Italian New Wave
films  of the late 1940s and 50s  ”Bitter Rice” and the Foreign Film Oscar
winning film “La Strada” directed by Federico Fellini with actors Anthony
Quinn,Giulietta Masina and Richard Basehart on the big screen  which an experience  beyond words.

Following that was the  documentary film,” An Italian in Hollywood” in
which Dino spoke about his  film career and
his love of  family, pasta and Italy. His
widow Martha De Laurentiis with
her daughter  Dina De Laurentiis.and his
children from his first marriage Veronica De
, and Raffaella De
were there to share the love and respect for this
brilliant father who  produced over 500
films and  left us with his film legacy. I
was present at his funeral in November of last year and former governor Arnold
Schwarzenegger, and directors David Lynch, Baz Luhrman were present to eulogize

So tonight actors Franco Nero, Kim Stuart Rossi, Robert
Davi,Sofia Milos,Joe Mantegna, director/writer Bobby Moresco (Chairman of the Board) ,Malin Akerman and
hubby  Roberto Zincone and the beautiful
co-host of E.News Live, Giuliana DePandi plus many other Italian celebrities
and filmmakers were there to commemorate him.

The Festival extends
until February 26 at the Mann Chinese in
Hollywood just steps away from the Oscar ceremony at
Kodak theater. So if you want a real taste of
Italy in Hollywood you are welcome guest of the festival where admission
is free.
