Event description

Description

Film@Solent Visiting Speaker Series presents

Dr. Rebekah Louisa Smith

Founder and CEO of The Film Festival Doctor

Rebekah will be talking to students about how to get your films into festivals.

Dr Rebekah Louisa Smith began her film industry career in 2007 working as one of the producers of Wales’ most successful national horror film festival, the Abertoir Horror Festival, which is part of the prestigious European Fantastic Film Festivals Federation. It was during this time when The Film Festival Doctor was created; Rebekah identified a niche within the film industry, specifically that there were very few companies offering high end bespoke services to filmmakers in order to achieve successful global film festival exposure & distribution.

In addition to working for the Abertoir Horror Festival and having an academic background, she is an Associate Producer (WHEN DERIN FALLS), Exec Producer (including EL MONSTRO DEL MAR! TIBET MEDITATION and the upcoming HYSTERIA).
Rebekah understands the processes of festival programming from working within the film festival sector and has subsequently built an impressive and large directory of contacts within the areas of film festival, sales, distribution and PR.
