Tim Reid’s Legacy Media Institute, in partnership with the City of Petersburg, will present LMI’s 2nd Annual International Film Festival October 17th, 18th and 19th, 2014! This year’s theme is: How film and musicinfluence culture.
The three day International Film Festival will feature a diverse array of film and panel discussions, workshops, musical events, product and equipment presentations at a variety of venues in the city of Petersburg and at New Millennium Studios. Screenings will include a complement of 40 short and feature length films from a select group of directors and producers from over 10 countries. Music performances and music’s relation to filmmaking and “culture-defining” will be presented throughout the Festival.
As the first such collaborative effort for the Legacy Media Institute and the City of Petersburg, the International Film Festival is poised to provide an enriching, entertaining, community event. LMI founder, filmmaker and actor, Tim Reid said, “I am excited by the opportunity to join the City in our mutual mission of promoting excellence and appreciation for filmmakers and the stories that they tell.”
“Everybody loves a good story. Film is a medium that brings multitudes of people together. It engages the mind while inviting creativity. Music and its sounds augment our experiences and oftentimes frame our emotions. This festival is a major coup for the City of Petersburg. It will draw from near and far. We are excited about this new partnership and the opportunities to build a greater platform for this art form in Petersburg. Through the efforts of LMI, Petersburg will become the place for arts and culture.” Says Brian C. Little, Sr., Manager of the Department of Cultural Affairs.
The Legacy Media International Film Festival is for filmmakers and film lovers alike. Attendees will be entertained, informed and inspired by the passions and unique visions of the filmmakers that represent their perspective of the interconnectedness of cultures.
