Opportunity to bridge the gap between Hollywood and the global creative community
The Hollywood Film Festival® announces some new initiatives to “bridge the gap” between Hollywood and the global creative community.
These include their new Hollywood Network® program, a screening event meant to initiate meetings between independent filmmakers and Hollywood industry professionals; combining sister organization Hollywood Gives Back with CineCause for the CineCause Spotlight section; and offering a select number of short films exclusively online.
“I’m very excited to have the chance to build on the success of the Hollywood Film Festival, and look forward to incorporating these new elements,” Jon Fitzgerald, Festival’s Executive Director, said in a statement. “Filmmakers will have opportunities to expand their connections, leverage entertainment to recognize important causes and broaden their reach to the online community, here in the film capital of the world.”
The festival runs from October 17-21 at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood.
