056 VIFF! Showcases Independence in Vegas Film Festival
The 2nd VIFF! Vegas Independent Film Festival will be here in Las Vegas from November 17th through the 20th at Theatre7 and the Orleans Hotel and Founder Derek Stonebarger joined John Donovan and I on Filmmakers Notebook to give you a special preview. In a gesture that may be a pre-holiday gift or true independent spirit, Derek also gave us the code filmnote that can be used for $20 off when purchasing All Access Passes to the event bringing the cost down to $17! This includes screenings, food & drink at Theatre7, the Red Carpet Walk at the Orleans and more. Just go to http://vegasiff.eventbrite.com/ and rememeber to use the discount code filmnote.
During this podcast we were also able to speak with director Dana Packard and writer/actress Jennifer Nicole Porter, who were happy to share some info about the opening night feature “40 West” including how they got Mr. Las Vegas himself ,Wayne Newton for a cameo role in their film. Find out more about them and other films and filmmakers that are going to part of this amazing film festival including a kick off event on November 16th celebrating indie filmmaking legend Ted V. Mikels by listening to this interview now and don’t forget to buy your tickets and come have some fun with us. We’re looking forward to making VIFF! a very special event.
