Are you a filmmaker with an upcoming project to promote? Are you interested in a career as a publicist? Want to attend a Q&A with an awarding-winning publicist this weekend? On Saturday, November 10th, renowned publicist Marc Cohen will be speaking to a select group of individuals about film marketing and publicity. Attendees will learn inside publicity tips from a leading Hollywood publicist.
For those not familiar with Cohen, he’s a two-time winner of the Publicist Guild’s Best Publicity Campaign of the Year award (for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and 300).

Marc is currently an Executive Consultant at Twentieth Century Fox’s theatrical marketing department, where he’s working on pictures such as Life of Pi, and DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods, Turbo and Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
