Manny P. here…
I’ve been invited to attend the 2010 Edmonds International Film Festival this Fall. This world-class event is moving from Idaho to Washington to present the latest top independent films created this year. The Film Fest is now being sponsored by the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce, which will make it a city wide experience.
Edmonds is 15 miles northwest of Seattle, and overlooks Puget Sound. According to the Festival website:
It’s official, a world-class international film festival is headed to Edmonds, Washington, bringing a chance for you to see new independent films from visionary directors around the world. Comedy, drama, action, adventure, romance, documentaries and much more in short and feature formats will be screened, with stars, filmmakers, crews, writers and more there to support their film and tell you, the audience, all about it. Learn from experts during our workshops and seminars, and be entertained by their war-stories of making independent films in the 21st century during panel discussions.
And this from the My Edmunds News.com:
The festival aims to be a signature event for Edmonds. For starters, there will be a gala kick-off party the evening of Oct. 20. Three evenings of films and three days of workshops. A book signing by radio and television personality Manny Pacheco, author of Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History. An awards brunch. And oh, yes — let’s not forget the red carpet that will be rolled out for celebrities.
As noted, my paperback Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History will be showcased during the Film Festival. I’ll be negotiating with the organizers in presenting a classic film retrospective I’ll most likely host. I’ll also present my book signing at the Edmonds Theatre. According to my publicist, Barbara Kindness, I shall also be involved with the on-going 30th Annual Friends Book Sale, which will take up the gymnasium of the Anderson Center during the same weekend in conjunction with the Fest.
It’s really exciting about an opportunity that awaits in the state of Washington for me on October 23rd & 24th. I’m thrilled my book will be featured during such a prestigious occasion.
Until next time> “never forget”
