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.

The Opening night of Hola Mexico Film Festival in Hollywood
was in the best Mexican spirit of laughter and music. On the Red Carpet  were Alvaro Curiel (Acorazado), José Antonio Zuñiga Rodríguez (Presunto Culpable), Jaime Camil (Salvando al Soldado
), Graciela
(Recording Artist), Yareli Arizmendi (Un día sin mexicanos), Damián Alcázar (El Infierno, De la Infancia,
Jazmin Lopez
(Recording Artist), Diego Schoening (ex Timbiriche), Gustavo Galindo (Recording Artist), and many more filmmakers and celebrities.


The Los Angeles Consul General of Mexico spoke to the packed
house at the Teatro Montalban which would have made one of my favorite actors,
Ricardo Montalban proud and the response from the crowded theatre where all I
saw were smiles on everyone’s faces. I fell more in love with the Mexican
people and culture after I had lived in Mexico
and worked for Televisa as a writer/actor for a Telenovella called “Forever”.
When you live there for one year you really get to appreciate Mexico
and its people. So for me, tonight was homecoming and my fiancé who is a Latina
was so excited to be part of this celebration.

The US
premiere of “Acorazado “directed by
Alvaro Curiel had the audience rollicking in their seats. Actor Silverio
Palacios is a true comic genius who can make you laugh or cry in an instant. He
shares his soul on the screen as this unemployed Mexican who desires the
American Dream and so he creates this raft with his VW bug and sails off to Miami
and we disguise himself as a Cuban seeking political asylum. Unfortunately he
loses his sense of direction and winds up in Havana,
Cuba. With a very
talented supporting cast in Cuba
and Mexico the
story has many flavors to savor and you feel like you are seeing inside of
these countries in the most truthful way.

In addition to the film the offerings of my favorite Mexican
foods and of course no evening would be complete without free Tequila.

I have seen many of the films so please take this
opportunity to see these films which will touch your hearts and your roots.

then they will open in New York
