This February, Saving Mom and Dad will be showcased at one of the world's festivals. Since its first edition in 1951, Berlin has risen to the top of film festivals, considered by many to be among the very best, along with Sundance, Toronto and Cannes. Each year, the Berlinale selects a few young rising stars in the film industry to come and make contacts to get future projects off the ground.
The concept is known as the Talent Campus, and this year SMD producer Julien Monestiez was selected from among over 3,300 candidates. The privilege of participating in Talent Campus will mean lots of exposure for the film. It will have special screenings, and Julien will be interviewed for a spotlight on new producers. Julien will also have the opportunity to meet producers, financiers, and many other people who can help getting the next film made. He'll be pitching a few projects, among them, Kartik Singh's followup to SMD. More to come.
