Waste Land at the GreenFilmFest

30 08 2011

On Sunday, at the GreenFilmFest (International environment Film Festival) I saw an excellent Academy Award nominee documentary, “Waste Land.”

It tells how Vik Muniz, the contemporary best-selling Brazilian artist in the U.S., returns home to take an emotional journey from Jardim Gramacho, the world’s largest garbage dump on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro, to the heights of international art stardom. Vik works with the so-called “catadores”, collectors of recyclable materials, who live and work in the garbage and are transformed by the power of art.

Directed by Lucy Walker, Fernando Meirelles as executive producer and music by Moby.

A truly must see!

From July 31 to August 1, 2010 in the very heart of Hollywood, California is the 14th Annual HOLLYWOOD PITCH FESTIVAL. Sponsored by Fade In Magazine, the Hollywood Pitch Festival brings together more than 200 major film and TV industry players, including studio, development, and creative executives, as well as producers, casting directors, agents, and managers. Emerging filmmakers, screenwriters, novelists and on-camera talent attend the Pitch Fest to take one-on-one, seven-minute-long meetings to make vital industry connections and directly present screenplays, books, ideas, and more, to the Pitch Fest’s illustrious roster of decision-makers. While the Pitch Fest schedule is entirely dedicated to pitch meetings, this year’s event also includes one complimentary pitch class to help participants hone their presentations, as well as the opportunity to network at a cocktail party.

The New York Times hails the Pitch Fest as the industry’s “answer to speed dating,” and adds that it offers “a rare chance to breach the barricades that bar the door to Hollywood; many of the companies involved – UTA, CAA, WME, ICM, Paramount, HBO, Warner Bros., Lionsgate, etc. – normally refuse to accept unsolicited ideas or scripts.” Previous participants have had tremendous success, with over 300 gaining agency and management representation and more than 100 screenplays sold and optioned, including BORN TO SHOP (Fox), THE MEDDLERS (Warner Bros.), DOGGY STYLE (Silver Lion Pictures), CROSSING THE LINE (Trancas Films), and IF ONLY (ABC).
