The Music Video Production Association (MVPA) will be holding the premiere screening of The 7th Annual Director's Cuts Film Festival next month, which highlights short films and experimental works of today's leading music video directors for the Los Angeles film community.
In addition to the incredibly diverse short films, three previously unaired Director’s cuts of music videos will screen, two of which are world premieres, by master directors Mark Romanek, Mark Pellington and Michel Gondry.
The event will be held at Universal Studios on Friday, January 7, 2005. The screening will be followed by a reception with the filmmakers and hosted bar. Ticket order forms are currently available at www.mvpa.com.
“We feel really strongly about these films, that were selected by a panel of their music video peers,” says festival producer Drea Clark. “With so many music video directors going on to helm feature projects, this is a great way to get an idea of their narrative potential.”
The program has premiered in Los Angeles annually to top feature film scouts, agency creatives and management companies, and tickets have been in high demand since its inception in 1998. The 98 minute program includes work by 15 directors and covers all visual and emotional genres.
The 7th Annual Director's Cuts Film Festival features short films by directors with such video experience as: Brett Simon (Hoobastank "The Reason"), Shaun Peterson (Train “Calling All Angels”), Charles Jensen (Von Bondies “Tell Me What You See”), Eric Henry (Buckethead “Spokes for the Wheels of Torment”), Doug Aitken (Barenaked Ladies “It’s All Been Done”), Ruben Fleischer (Dizzee Rascal “Stand Up Tall”), Bob Odenkirk (HBO’s Mr. Show), Dustin Robertson (Usher “Yeah”, editor) and more.
Many of the past directors have secured multi-picture deals, gained high profile representation and confirmed development arrangements as a result of the LA Program.
