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.

On Sept. 21, Rachel Galvin had the honor to introduce the top three winners of NE Focal Point’s essay contest. Galvin was one of three judges of the competition, which included almost 20 essayists writing about “What NE Focal Point Means to Me.” Galvin was surprised to be acknowledged by NE Focal Point with a certificate and a few other things to take home for her participation as a judge. The winning essays will be published by Galvin in The Observer Newspaper, of which she is editor.
Rachel Galvin was thrilled when she heard that she won for best freelance writer for Women in the Arts Miami. Galvin won Best Web Radio Show with WITA back in 2013 and is very excited to be nominated again. She would like to extend her gratitude especially to Diana Laura, who founded WITA for putting together this wonderful event, which will be held this year on Sept. 18.
