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.
Rachel Galvin helped Kurt Donath to run the Super Geek Film Festival at Florida Supercon (June 25-28 at the Miami Beach Convention Center). She conducted two panels — one was Women in Film with Cerina Vincent, Jacqueline Journey and Joey Lauren Adams, and one with independent filmmakers — Terry Cronin, Jon Schnepp, Daryl Rodriguez, Jeanette Garcia and Billy Corben.

Rachel Galvin’s artwork, titled “Inferno” is displayed at the Bear & Bird Gallery at Tate’s Comics until Nov. 9. The painting went up on Oct. 4 when there was also an artist’s reception, in which Rachel was in attendance. The piece was based on a drawing she did as the illustrator of “Davy Jones & the Heart of Darkness,” written by Dave Montalbano, who also attended the reception. The pair was featured in an artistic blog while there.
Rachel already created a new piece, which is completely different, called A Jew of All Seasons, which was created for an art contest. Both pieces were created on canvas with acrylics and pencil.
