Cut! Film Festival

Will Feature A Panel With Mike Grell, Mark Ryan, & Steve Niles! 

CUT! Film Festival celebrates film and those who create them...  As mentioned in an earlier blog post, I have been notified that LiquidSPACE in conjunction with Graykin Entertainment and GALS Charitable Foundation will be presenting CUT! Film Festival 2009! The festival is a benefit and celebration of cinema dedicated to the art and imagination that goes into the creation of film.

The festival will be taking place the weekend of March 14-15, 2009 at the historic Aero Theatre, 1328 Montana Ave. at 14th Street, Santa Monica, California.  

What is neat about this festival is that "from concept to pre-production, production and post, you’ll hear the back-story of how a concept became screenplay and how screenplay became film".

My main interest in this Festival is on an project that I blogged about before, Code Name: Zeus. (Click here for that blog post.) 

However, there is also another special Panel being shown there that would be of interest to those interested in Comics and what are considered 'Comic Book Movies':

"COMICS AND THE IMPACT ON FILM TODAY Panel, showcasing the talents of legends in the comic world, MIKE GRELL, a 30+ year veteran of comics (The Green Arrow, The Warlord, Jon Sable) and winner of the prestigious INKPOT AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT IN COMIC ART, partnered with MARK RYAN, who together have written a new graphic novel entitled, The Pilgrim, and fellow veteran of comics and film, 30 Days of Night, creator and writer, STEVE NILES, will discuss the evolution of comics in film today. This promises to be a fascinating topic of discussion."

There are several other projects that are presented at this festival, but lack of space in this blog format keeps me from mentioning them. I'll leave you to check out The Cut! Film Festival blog site at:  http://www.cutfilmfestival.org.  

I have been told that all the screenings and panels will be followed by a 'Meet and Greet Session' with the guests.  So for those of you able to attend this Festival bring your camera and a sharpie and most of all, enjoy the weekend seeing as many programs and panels as you can

Also, there is an important raffle going on prior to the Festival... check out this link for details: http://www.cutfilmfestival.org/raffle.html

Click Here to see our current listed Comics, Books, and Graphic Novels, some! Steven Niles, a Facebook Friend of mine, is known for his comic book work on 'The Nail' (Dark Horse), 'Bigfoot' (IDW), a Batman mini-series 'Gotham County Line' (DC Comics), '30 Days Of Night' which was optioned for a major motion picture release, among other works!

Mike Grell is most widely known for his 'Warlord' comic book series for DC Comics, his own creator owned 'Starslayer' and 'Jon Sable Freelance', and the Tarzan comic strip from 1981-1983.

Mark Ryan has worked in TV and Film for many years, probably best known for his voice work in the 'Transformers' Film as the robot 'Bumblebee'.  His latest work 'The Pilgrim', is a graphic novel inspired by factual events occuring during WWII concerning modern psychic warfare research.
