Owensboro, KY (Saturday, November 3rd, 2012) - Verite Cinema, the Owensboro based production company behind the award-winning A Mind Beside Itself and Hallows Eve: Slaughter on Second Street and Kentucky Wesleyan College will host year two of The River City Festival of Films on Saturday, November 3, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on the Wesleyan campus. The all-genre charity event will celebrate the art of independent films and the diverse mix of talented filmmakers in the region and beyond.
The production company, in operation since 2007, showcases the abilities of aspiring artists in the area and gives local/regional talent a viable venue to screen their work to the community and achieve recognition for their efforts. According to P. J. Starks of Verite Cinema, the group advocates continuing education to learn the many facets of production, both behind the scenes and before the camera. Independent filmmaking is engaging, and we bring a unique and exciting opportunity to view local talent and meet them face-to-face, remarked Starks.
Attendees will be able to speak one-on-one with filmmakers, including Hollywood artists from Kentucky, following the screenings, and industry professionals will present workshops and master classes.
Starks shared, We are creating an experience like no other in the Owensboro area with the opportunity to learn about the world of professional acting, screenwriting and directing. Its a great way to get industry tips and secrets.
The day long event will screen both features and shorts, present live music by local musicians and give those who attend a chance to meet many different artists from production companies to writers to actors and the like.
