Rachel Galvin was quoted in “The Sun-Sentinel” about the upcoming Palm Beach Intl. Film Festival. See quote below:
“The Palm Beach International Film Festival looks to have an engaging and fun year,” said local film critic Rachel Galvin, who writes and publishes a film magazine called Independent Streak.
“They are scheduled to have a diverse array of activities to be welcoming to a wider audience,” Galvin said. “Any opportunity to allow local and international filmmakers the chance to showcase their work is positive.”
“Prowler: The Terror of Santa Carla” is set to go to the Cannes Film Fest (the short film version) in France, according to director Ram Hernandez. Rachel Galvin did a voiceover as a reporter in the film and is pleased to hear it is headed to the fest. Hernandez said as many as 5000 people could be in attendance at fest.
