Debra Russell Recommends The Hollywood Reporter

Debra Russell recommends, Trade Magazine, Art and Entertainment Industry, Film Business, Theatre Production West Coast, Television ProductionThe Hollywood Reporter began as the entertainment industry’s first daily trade paper in Hollywood.  This magazine is the definitive source for information on the entertainment industry in the U.S. (there’s an international issue published weekly), including movie, TV, theater, and DVD reviews; casting calls; box office rankings; and weekly MPAA ratings; as well as overviews of everything from the music industry to the commercial real estate market. While the entertainment industry itself is clearly the intended audience, anyone who wants to see the Hollywood that exists beneath the surface glitz that has become synonymous with Hollywood will find this magazine well worth the money.

Debra Recommends Independent Film Project

Independent Film ProjectAfter debuting with a program in the 1979 New York Film Festival, the nonprofit IFP has evolved into the nation’s oldest and largest organization of independent filmmakers, and also the premier advocate for them.  Since its start, IFP has supported the production of 7,000 films and provided resources to more than 20,000 filmmakers–voices that otherwise might not have been heard. IFP believes that independent films enrich the universal language of cinema, seeding the global culture with new ideas, kindling awareness, and fostering activism. The organization has fostered early work by leading filmmakers including Charles Burnett, Edward Burns, Jim Jarmusch, Barbara Kopple, Michael Moore, Mira Nair and Kevin Smith.

Currently, IFP represents a network of 10,000 filmmakers in New York City and around the world. Through its workshops, seminars, conferences, mentorships, and Filmmaker Magazine, IFP schools its members in the art, technology, and business of independent filmmaking (there are special programs to promote racial, ethnic, religious, ideological, gender, and sexual diversity). IFP builds audiences by hosting screenings-often in collaboration with other cultural institutions-and also bestows the Gotham Awards, the first honors of the film awards season. When all is said and done, IFP fosters the development of 200 feature and documentary films each year.
