Join Isabella and her guest Susan Johnston, Tuesday April 10, at 7pm PST on A Better Life! Susan is the Founder/Director of New Media Film Festival, Cinema with Global Consciousness by honoring stories worth telling.
She founded the New Media Festival after re-locating from New England, where along with team members, significant results were achieved in establishing the professional film infra-structure for the state of Rhode Island. Working in Los Angeles, she delved into International co-producing, talent producing, directing TV Development, and collaborating on innovative projects with her award winning production company, Select Services Films, Inc.
New Media Film Festival can be described as, The Best in New Media-What’s New, What’s Next…Honoring Stories Worth Telling in all media that are innovative, imaginative and inspirational, created by people of All Ages-All Cultures-All Media. Stories that can make you laugh, cry, think & go beyond the ordinary. “Sundance for the Facebook Crowd”- Culture Rehab
Susan’s incredibly busy and has been involved in practically every aspect of Hollywood filmmaking. She brings a lot to the table in founding the New Media Festival. Her energy and experience are stamped all over the planning, screening and presenting of this unusual festival.
A spirited and passionate woman, she’s worked in Hollywood long enough to know that the only thing you can expect from the business is that it is always changing. Which is one of the reasons she came up with the idea for a film festival in Hollywood that focuses specifically on New Media. Susan’s goal was to create an event that would not only bring people together and “provide opportunities for filmmakers,” but also showcase work that is not often found (if at all) in traditional film festivals.
