Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

 

 

Presenting the website

 

sunsetfilmfestivalla@gmail.com


MISSION:  The mission is simple: Promote filmmakers and screen writers.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:  Lots of films are rejected at film festivals. One of the reasons is that there are too many submissions. Producing a film is one thing.  The next step is submitting your film to film festivals. Then you realize that nothing is really happening. The Sunset Film Festival is different. Giving filmmakers and screenwriters the opportunity to be noticed is our priority. Distributors love films screened at Festivals. They love them even better when they are awarded.


FOUNDER:  The festival is brought to you by Mark Mos, Kodak Entertainment Imaging Awarded filmmaker and Film Premieres organizer. Mark has organized pre-premiere film presentations such as: “Gladiator” (Russell Crowe), “Mission Impossible 2” (Tom Cruise), “Gone in 60 seconds” (Nicholas Cage, Angelina Jolie), “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” (Jim Carrey), and much more. He was in charge of the 5th Youth and Children Film Festival. Mark Mos is also a filmmaker; he has master’s degree in TV and Film Production. His films were shown on film festivals in cities such as Los Angeles, Chicago or Salt Lake City and also European countries: Hungary, Poland and Romania.

IMPORTANT:  100% of submission fees go directly to promote festival and rent auditorium for screenings. Submit your film with Sunset Film Festival. This is the key to go further with your passion.
