2008 International Film Festival Summit Features a Panel Addressing How to Appropriately Measure Your Festivals Success










New York, NY (PRWEB) November 26, 2008

The 5th Annual International Film Festival Summit (IFFS) announces that the River Run, AFI Dallas and San Diego International Film Festivals as well as Ashland Independent Film Festival will take part in a panel discussion that will address considerations and metrics for success including: number of films, number of acquisitions, celebrities, size of audience, longevity, number of impressions and reach at this year’s summit taking place December 7-9, 2008 in Las Vegas.

The session entitled “Success Metrics: Where to Set the Bar”, will take place Monday, December 8th at 4:00 pm and be moderated by Andrew Rodgers, Executive Director, RiverRun International Film Festival.

There are so many different definitions of success and “bigness.” There are film festivals that attract hundreds of thousands of people, and yet are not on the mainstream radar, and festivals which show only a few dozen films that are world famous. This session will address considerations and metrics for success including: number of films, number of acquisitions, celebrities, size of audience, longevity, number of impressions and reach? Most notably, these different metrics have differing relevance to the constituents served by festivals – audiences, filmmakers, sponsors, media, film industry etc. Hear from different festivals on how they approach benchmarking and defining success.

Panelists include Michael Cain, Artistic Director & CEO, AFI Dallas International Film Festival, Graham Leggat, Executive Director, San Francisco International Film Festival, and Joanne Feinberg, Director of Programming, Ashland Independent Film Festival.

Some of this year’s attendees include: AFI Fest Presented by Audi, Atlanta Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, Bside, Starz Denver Film Festival, FilmThreat, Palm Springs International Film Festival, River Run International Film Festival, San Diego Film Festival, San Francisco International Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Gen Art, San Diego Asian Film Festival, DC Shorts Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, AFI Dallas International Film Festival, SXSW, Variety, Withoutabox and many, many more.

Other sponsors include: Agile Ticketing, Avid, AAA Flag & Banner, AREA 4, Eyesoda.com, inticketing, Festival Media Corporation, Filmfestivals.com, FilmMaker Magazine, FilmThreat, MovieMaker, NAMAC, Production Hub, Qube Digital Cinema and Variety.

Award-Winning Drama Makes Its Canadian Debut; JuneBug Films’ “Planting Melvin” Screens at ReelHeART International Film Festival










Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) June 20, 2006

Since making its debut at the prestigious Cinequest Film Festival last year, “Planting Melvin” has won acclaim — and awards — for its positive depiction of women and promotion of female empowerment. Toronto filmgoers will have their first opportunity to see the award-winning drama when “Planting Melvin” makes its Canadian debut during the ReelHeART International Film Festival, June 19-24, 2006.

The film screens on June 21 at 9:15 p.m. at Innis Town Hall at Innis College, University of Toronto, 2 Sussex Ave. For ticket information, visit http://www.reelheart.org.

“Planting Melvin” focuses on the lives of two seemingly opposite characters: Billie, a beautiful socialite dealing with the physical and emotional effects of an abusive marriage; and Melvin, a dying World War II vet with secrets of his own. This unlikely friendship becomes their safe harbor as they confront their individual issues and learn—together —one of life’s most difficult lessons … letting go.

As the film’s writer, director and producer, Kari Nevil of California-based JuneBug Films, is thrilled with the positive response “Planting Melvin” has received from audiences at film festivals across the country.

“Because JuneBug is an all-female film company, we are especially committed to the positive representation of women and empowering them to find a better life for themselves and their children,” Nevil said. “The fact that the film has been so well received by audiences says a lot about the progress we’re making in our society toward the advancement of women. And we are very excited about bringing our film to Toronto and sharing our message as part of ReelHeART.”

In addition to praise from audiences, “Planting Melvin” has won acclaim from advocacy groups and arts organizations including its recent selection by the National Film Review Board of Canada for “representing anti-violence against women and children in an international way.”

“Planting Melvin,” starring Irene Bedard (Smoke Signals), Yvette Freeman (ER), Alma Martinez (Born in East LA), Don Most (Happy Days), Hal Robinson (Paulie) and Richard Van Vleet (All My Children), screens on June 21 at 9:15 p.m. at Innis Town Hall at Innis College, University of Toronto, 2 Sussex Ave. For ticket information, visit http://www.reelheart.org.

JuneBug Films was founded by Kari Nevil in 1990. She ran the company out of her purple house in San Francisco before the group moved into American Zoetrope with Francis Coppola. Today, JuneBug Films operates out of Menlo Park with a team of L.A. and San Francisco-based collaborators that provide filmed entertainment in the form of narrative features, documentaries, short films, music videos and corporate films.

JuneBug Films has created features including “At Risk” (Vince Vaughn’s first feature), “Your Guardian” and “Planting Melvin.” The company’s recent film, “Car Stories” – their first foray into documentary films – is currently making the rounds of independent film festivals, generating buzz and gathering fans from Florida to California. JuneBug is working to make “Car Stories” an episodic series.
