“The Gulls,” first full-length feature film from the remote region of Kalmykia in the Republic of Russia, had its US premiere at the 2015 AFI FEST film festival. Pictured above left to right, HollywoodGlee and starring actress/model, Evgeniya Mandzhieva. It was Mandzhieva’s first big-screen appearance.

AFI FEST is:
“A program of the American Film Institute, AFI FEST presented by Audi is a celebration of global cinema and today’s Hollywood — a showcase for the best festival films of the year and an opportunity for master filmmakers and emerging artists to come together with audiences in the movie capital of the world.”
This is a favorite film festival of all types of film goers taking place in the heart of Hollywood!
Venues include the historic Hollywood Egyptian Theater. (http://egyptiantheatre.com/egyptian/egypt.htm)

Welcome to the newest blog on film review and film distribution. I’m a veteran of many film festivals including AFI Hollywood, TCM Classic Film Festival, and the up and coming Santa Barbara International Film Festival. To date I’ve written and published thirty-five film reviews and have work posted on three sites, sbccfilmreviews.org, imdb.com and filmbutton.com. In addition, I have been published in Classic Film Images magazine.
In addition to writing reviews and covering film festivals, I am currently seeking distribution for new films. I have contacts in several major markets including Los Angeles, New York, Toronto, and Cannes, France and as I write this post I’m actively developing contacts in Tokyo, Japan.
So when you’re looking for your film to get noticed, remember HollywoodGlee can help. We have professional marketers, respected critics and the most knowledgeable contacts on what film festival and/or distribution channel is right for you and your film.
