Event Details

The Art of Talking About Your Film

Presented by Reid Rosefelt


The way you talk about your film has a huge impact on whether people will want to see it. Whether you’re communicating with the public through a press release, an interview, a Q&A session, or even a conversation—the words you use can make the difference between success and failure.

A good description will influence how your film is seen and can even deepen the experience people have when they see it. 

Film publicist Reid Rosefelt shares what he has learned over a lifetime of trying to get people to watch and appreciate movies.
