Filmmaker Panel at Tribeca Delves into the Creation of Visual Styles;
Discussion is Part of Kodak's Festival Support

NEW YORK, NY, April xx, 2010 - A panel featuring award-winning filmmakers will explore creative collaboration and image quality here at the Tribeca Film Festival. Eastman Kodak Company, an official Industry Sponsor of the 2010 Tribeca Film Festival, will host the free seminar, to be held April 29, at 2 p.m., at the SVA Theater, which is open to festival attendees and the public.

Tribeca Talks: Talking With Pictures will feature some of today's leading filmmakers relating their experiences in creating the look of a film, and explaining how the visual style plays a major role in defining the tone and eliciting emotions. Participants will include: writer/director Lee Isaac Chung (Lucky Life), actor/writer/director Jacob Tierney (The Trotsky), producer Jon Kilik (Babel), and cinematographers Nancy Schreiber, ASC and Lance Acord, ASC. The panel will be moderated by Brandon Harris of Filmmaker Magazine. Chung, Tierney and Schreiber also have films screening at the festival this year.

"The collaboration among directors, producers and cinematographers results in images that capture and convey the emotions of a story," says Lauren Lung, vice president and general manager of Kodak's Entertainment Imaging Division in North and South America. "These filmmakers can speak eloquently about the artistic value and cost-efficiency of image making on celluloid."

The Tribeca Film Festival was founded in 2001 by Jane Rosenthal, Craig Hatkoff, and Robert DeNiro to spur the economic and cultural revitalization of Manhattan through a celebration of film, music and culture. Tribeca is well known for being a diverse international film festival that supports emerging and established directors. The films and filmmakers at the festival represent an important cross-section of the international creative community, and its audience and attendees contribute to a flourishing industry.

Kodak's support of the festival extends to the Filmmakers Lounge as well as networking opportunities to enhance the festivalgoer's experience, and make possible many of the services provided to filmmakers during the festival.

Now in its ninth year, the Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 21 to May 2. The SVA theater is located at 333 West 23rd Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues.
