The first quarter of the New Year is always very exciting for us in Hollywood! In January, Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah showcased the body of work of talented film makers.This is a popular venue for the screenings of upcoming independent films that are produced outside the studio system. Golden Globe Award winner, Spike Jonze continued on to win an Oscar for his screenplay,”Her” at the 86th annual Academy Award ceremony at the Dolby Theater.
In May the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival will commence in the south of France for approximately ten days. New motion pictures and documentaries from across the globe will be previewed.
