The Fourth Annual International Love Unlimited Film Festival & Art Exhibition Offers An Alternative To The Usual Film Festival Fare!
Many of today’s film festivals have become crowded, impersonal events that follow the same formulaic routines. If celebrities, directors, or casts from movies are present, interactions are very limited, sometimes staged, and offer little or no opportunity for networking or close contact. Worse, many festivals have become crowded with industry insiders, who muscle out more innovative work to present predictable, commercial fare. This can transform film festivals from potentially one of the most exciting events there is into a dreary, tiring affair.
This makes the Love Unlimited Film & Art Exhibition unique. Through relaxed and friendly chat-backs and Q&A sessions with screenwriters, cast, crew, writers, producers, directors, and more, Love Unlimited offers not only close interactions but also possibilities for networking with actual working professionals in the film and art industries. A couple of award winning guests this year in Venice are Shanisha Mitchell (writer of "Love Moore") and Suzanne Kelman (co-writer of "Held").
The Love Unlimited Film & Art Exhibition doesn’t offer the same predictable program of events found at other festivals, but makes room for groundbreaking, original, and inspiring work by voices often unable to be heard elsewhere. This year we are happy to have Marc Saez, the Screenwriter & Director and Véronique Picciottio, the lead actress, who are traveling from Paris, Franceto attend the screening and give a Q+A afterwards along with his daughter who appeared in the film. We also look forward to Award Winning screenwriters such as Elise Jackson, Mary Krell-Oishi, Rose Woods, Andrew Garrett, and many others making amazing presentations! Along with an international array of feature films, shorts, documentaries, music videos, and other genres, festival-goers in particular also have the opportunity to hear working directors and writers present script-readings and to participate in Q&A sessions afterward. This is a chance to participate directly with film-makers in their process and to spread the love to everyone at the festival.
