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.


Reconciliation: Mandela's Miracle a film

Reconciliation: Mandela's Miracle a film : documentaryReconciliation: Mandela's Miracle a filmby Michael Henry Wilson

by RonGilbert


The title of this film says it all. Yes! Nelson Mandela is amiracle and an inspiration. In America we hadMartin Luther King and in SouthAfrica they hadNelson Mandela, who has this fortitude and determination and he never lost hopeeven after spending 26 years in prison. He is a precious gift to everyone. Oscarwinning director Clint Eastwood’s voice is at the opening of this documentaryand his words are “I have always thought that Nelson Mandela was a fascinatingcharacter and of course his wonderful presence and a sort of a million dollarsmile and a personality that makes people feel happy when they are around him.He still has this great charismatic presence which is what this all about.Theway he handled SouthAfrica is uniqueand found a way of utilizing Rugby duringapartheid and inspired the whole country to get behind him”. Clint is on theset of his film “Invictus” discussing this and we views clips of his film and the1995 World Cup Rugby match and he talks about Mandela’s dream to unite hiscountry which is a very tough job. From then on you know that you are about tosee a film that you will never forget. I could never put into words that way itaffected me. Director Michael Henry Wilson has incorporated vintage footage ofMandela back in 1964 and interviews and also clips of the film “Invictus” issuch a way that your eyes are glued to the screen because you do not want tomiss a moment. He has detailed the events that lead up to what the people ofSouth African's have coined "Mandela's miracle," a strategy thatresulted in a peaceful transition from apartheid to a democracy which was drivenby the notion that even the most terrible tyranny can be overcome throughreconciliation, as both the oppressed and the oppressors need to be liberatedfrom the jaws of prejudice and injustice. A message that sticks in my mind ifsaid in the film “we won’t be free until we are all free”. In Clint’s words “Theworld needs people like him."

Clint Eastwood will be presented with an Award on November 15, 2010

Thisfilm will be screened at the Museum of Tolerance in LosAngeles on Sunday, November 14, 12:30 pm, Hertz Theater and Tuesday,November 16, 8:30 pm, Wosk Theater
