Friday was our final day in Bermuda, and although it was raining, we still had a great day!
We began with our morning screening of SHELTER, presented by producer JD Disalvatore, and followed with an impromptu screening of CineSLAM Film Slam Seminar participant Cheryl Furjanic’s documentary SYNC OR SWIM.
After our lunchtime break, we began again in Michael’s Lounge on board the Summit for our CineSLAM Film Slam Seminar/ Webisode panel discussion with Randall Jenson (50FAGGOTS), Sebastian La Cause (HUSTLING), and JC Calciano (STEAM ROOM STORIES). It was truly an exciting and educational discussion. Click the links above to see for yourself!
Finally, we closed the day with our second official group dinner, sponsored by The Advocate!

Today was our second full day on the ocean, and we are well underway. This morning we opened with the awkwardly hilarious short GAYBY by Jonathan Lisecki, and the powerful documentary WISH ME AWAY, starring Chely Wright.
In the late morning, Miriam Cutler, musical composer, held an enlightening seminar titled “Know the Score: What Film Music Brings to Storytelling”, followed by our second round of CineSLAM Film Slam Seminars.
Tomorrow morning we will arrive in Bermuda, and we will post pictures from the previous days’ events.
Today began our first of many screenings this week, and a busy day it was! We began with the amazing documentary VITO by Jeffrey Schwarz. Miriam Cutler, the film’s musical composer is on board with us, and did a wonderful Q&A session after the film.
Following VITO, was our first “Filmmaker on Board, Special Screening” with producer Lesli Klainberg presenting PAUL MONETTE: THE BRINK OF SUMMER’S END.
In mid-afternoon we held our first of three CineSLAM Film Slam Seminars, which is a program that offers the chance for filmmakers to workshop their works-in-progress among a group of talented peers.
Finally, we finished the day with our first official group dinner and the elegant Cosmopolitan restaurant.
