The Best in New Media – 2017 Award Winners Of The 7th Annual New Media Film Festival

June 6-8, Los Angeles

New Media Film Festival took place on June 6-8. It featured 29 world premieres including 11 US premieres and 21 LA premieres.

I had a great time attending the red carpet and Q&A with actors and film directors.

At one of these meetings the cast of Non – Transferable shared their experience shooting the movie in Turkey. They faced a lot of obstacles but had a great time filming scenes there: “The point is… you don’t know. You don’t ask. Crazy things happen sometimes if you do ask”, – shared her experience Ashley Clements who portrays Amy Tyler in Non – Transferable. The movie is a love story about two people who finally decide to be together.
