Sell Your Film, and Build a Canoe
Jun 7, 2021 | 6:00 pm
One event on Jun 9, 2021 at 6:00 pm
East End Books Ptown continues its virtual book series with two events this week.
Behind every film’s success, there’s a business model that helped get it there. On Monday, June 7th at 6 p.m., producer Alec Trachtenberg presents his pragmatic guide to filmmakers and producers, Lights, Camera, Sell. Trachtenburg will be in conversation with successful indie film producer Christine Kunewa Walker, former CEO of the Provincetown International Film Festival, whose production credits include the Todd Solondz film Life During Wartime; the Allen Ginsberg biopic Howl, starring James Franco; and Lawrence Kasdan’s Darling Companion.
The second event, on Wednesday, June 9th at 6 p.m., concerns Little and Often: A Memoir, Trent Preszler’s account of love and loss. It describes how Preszler came to terms with his grief after losing his estranged father — he built a wooden canoe which, in the book, serves as a metaphor for the healing power of creativity. Registration for either event is $5 minimum donation at eastendbooksptown.com.
