The Victoria Film Festival: Eight Days to the Final Deadline for Springboard
By: infilm on 12/30/08

The final deadline for Springboard registration is just eight days away. Top North American broadcasters and distributors continue to confirm attendance. Selwyn Jacob from the National Film Board, and Jonah Zalken in charge of acquisitions at Bravo! (Canada) and Book Television will take part in the one-on-one sessions. Director Larry Weinstein, whose movie Inside Hana’s Suitcase is generating great festival buzz has confirmed, as has Richard Ledes, director of The Caller, another exciting festival film. Also, Eli Goree the Springboard Top 20 pick and actor extraordinaire will be here to talk about his experiences in the industry.

In addition, Harold Gronenthal will be here on January 30th to present a worldview of media and changing delivery systems. He’ll get you ready for your one-on-one sessions by helping you understand the changing technological dynamics to tweak your productions so they might work on different platforms (phones, internet and television).

The full $250 Delegate Pass includes one on one meetings, all Springboard talks, access to the hospitality suite, the Opening Gala (film and reception), a delegate catalogue and the Victoria Film Producers’ Association screening and reception. Delegates can attend with or without a project. Remember, the deadline for registration as a full delegate is January 6, 2009!
