International Premiere of CONCERT to Open 2012 DocMiami Film Festival
Documentary film CONCERT makes debut at DocMiami International Film Festival.
Documenting a benefit acoustic concert performed by Rappaport, Concert effectively relays the creative process of an artist from the inception of an idea for a song to its performance onstage. An accomplished singer-songwriter, Rappaport wrote most of the original music and lyrics in the film. Concert follows Rappaport through a series of interviews describing the inspiration and stories behind the songs and the songs behind the stories, providing astounding insight into the inner workings of a creative mind.
Concert has previously been shown at industry screenings, including the American Bar Association International Legal Symposium on the World of Music, Film, Television and Sports, the Women in Film Independent Film Series, the Boca Raton Museum of Art and the Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival. Having already received accolades at these screenings, Rappaport is looking forward to presenting Concert to an international audience through this collaboration with DocMiami. “On behalf of the producers of Concert, we are honored and excited to be a part of the DocMiami International Film Festival,” said Rappaport.
We applaud the festival’s ongoing artistic commitment to the documentary arts and are proud to be involved with it as our film makes its international debut at DocMiami; an international festival in a city that is a worldwide Mecca for the arts.
The official screening for Concert is slated for Thursday, December 6, 2012, at 7:00 pm. Richard Warren Rappaport will attend the DocMiami International Film Festival to present his film with executive producer René Katz.
