“Breaking into Screenwriting” presented by The Scriptwriters Network. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Complimentary parking available behind bookstore.“The Pasadena International Film Festival is an experience not to be missed by filmmakers. From the elegant black tie “Great Gatsby” Gala Opening night, to the diverse, informative panels, to the top quality screenings in an actual mainstream movie theatre… in over ten years of traveling the festival circuit with multiple films, this was, hands down, one of the best-run festivals, and the best times I have even had AT a festival. I wish I had another film ready to go so I could submit next year!”
