APAP Emerging Leadership Institute Announces 2017 Class of Participants
Rare opportunity for each participant to reflect on and develop their ideas about leadership and their own career
Washington, DC (September 9, 2016) – The Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) announces its 16th class for the Emerging Leadership Institute (ELI). ELI is an intensive two and a half-day seminar that develops critical leadership skills for emerging performing arts professionals. Each year, a new cohort is invited to participate in ELI and attend APAP|NYC, APAP’s annual members conference held in New York City every January.
“We created ELI because there is a need in the field to retain people with 3-7 years of experience and equip them with the training and tools to take the next step in their career, becoming effective leaders in the performing arts,” says, Scott Stoner, vice president of programs of APAP. “It is important to stimulate conversation and provide a forum for these young leaders to grow and think about how leadership can operate on different levels and then take that knowledge and apply it first-hand.”
Approximately 25 participants are selected each year from a wide pool of applicants and are comprised of those who work directly in the presenting and touring field which includes, but is not limited to, performing artists, presenters, managers, agents, producers and professionals who work for arts councils or service organizations. ELI is an opportunity to engage in new professional relationships, exchange ideas, and become part of an expanding network of over 400 ELI alumni.
“Year after year I am inspired by artists, managers and cultural workers who are building careers in our field. My role is to co-facilitate dialogue, introduce mechanisms for action and ignite strong relationships development among the expanding ELI alumni network,” says, Rosalba Rolon, long-time co-facilitator of the ELI program. “What makes the ELI effective is that participants are sharing their experiences among similar-minded individuals and expanding their individual perspectives to provide strategies that may ultimately permeate their organizations.”
Celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2017, APAP has been committed to leadership development in the changing ecology of the performing arts industry, providing avenues for members to expand and strengthen their leadership skills. ELI 2017 will take place January 4-6, 2017 during the days leading up to APAP|NYC 2017 (January 6-10, 2017).

REFLECTING WOMEN: DIGITAL HOLLYWOOD VIRTUAL REALITY SUMMIT FALL 2016
By Contributing Editor, Business, West Coast Tanya Young @Tanya1720
For the fifth year in a row, Victor Harwood gathered leading makers, gamers, fans and press to delve into all things digital in Hollywood. The particular twist for this conference was its focus on virtual reality (VR) as a transformational tool for electronic media. The conference also explored binge watching as well as media finance and production for artists and creators of television, film and the internet.
Actually, Mr. Harwood and his speakers interpreted VR more broadly into augmented reality, immersive reality and what I call “enhanced” reality. Virtual reality (VR) is an artificial, computer-generated recreation of a real life environment or situation that makes the user feel like they are experiencing the simulated reality firsthand, primarily through vision, hearing and motion. In VR, your head movements are tracked in a three-dimensional world, making it ideally suited to interactive games, branded short subjects and even movies. It replaces the real world with a simulated one. Augmented reality (AR) is a live view of a real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
As one of twenty SAG-AFTRA members comped to the fall event, delving into the shoptalk of gaming creators, yeomen designers and engineers as well as profiteers was a bit jarring in light of actors’ current, overdue strike against the video game industry.
If dozens of Digital Hollywood panelists are to be believed, we are just a few years away from a storytelling revolution on par with the dawn of the film projector, VCR and the Blu-ray player. CEO Jim Stewartson of Awesome Rocketship plans to bring photo booth-style VR kiosks to malls, arcades and other public venues at a cost of $10 to $15 per experience. Media and entertainment engineer Ed Lantz presented a new venture Vortex Immersion Media that brings virtual reality experiences into the nightclub environment of Las Vegas.
But for all the VR and immersive reality cheerleaders, there are a handful of naysaying gadflies. Dave Cobb, VP Creative Development for Thinkwell Group, sees neither the cost and hygiene of hardware nor the appeal of content as compelling enough for the mass market. Yet. Currently, Cobb describes higher-end private resorts as better venues for VR and related programming at a more realistic price point.
According to , forty-seven percent of gamers are between 18 and 49 years old. Fifty-nine percent of those who play games on a regular basis are men; forty-one percent are women. Women remain in the minority audience traditional single or multiplayer games. Top titles include Halo, Grand Theft Auto, Street Fighter and World of Warcraft.
Advocates of mainstream video gaming say the violence in popular games is about fantasy. Shoot ’em ups can be a really unique way to relax. The point is that, unlike real life stressors, video game shoot ’em ups are not real.
During one of the handful of panels focusing on women, Catherine Day of Jaunt VR posited hope that the virtual reality revolution in gaming will make empathy, rather than shoot ’em ups, the prime movers.
Contradicting this empathy direction, the panel on consumer points-of-contact described agency as the key to consumer enjoyment of ER in kiosks, domes, IMAX and other special venues that extend beyond the headset.
Cost and hardware, though available, remain prohibitive to the average $200-$400 console gamer with a PlayStation. The more expensive options are Oculus Rift ($600), Samsung Gear VR ($99) and the HTC Vive ($800). The Oculus Rift was repeatedly clowned during the four days panels – both for its price and onerous equipment package. But these consoles really are ready for holiday purchase. Reviews and word-of-mouth on theses consumer VR packages is extremely limited at the moment. So I’m not clear which VR gears delivers the biggest bang for your buck.
Let me praise the newer venue for the Digital Hollywood conference. Though the Ritz-Carlton Marina Del Rey will always have its wind-blown charms, what a terrific conference venue Skirball is — from the elegant rooms and grand, austere structures in close proximity to the security staff and close, free easily accessible Wi-fi and plentiful free parking.
The highlight of each conference day was the wine, beer & snacks reception by the reflecting pool in the Taper Courtyard.
Truly, Victor Harwood is a supremely thoughtful expert in developing and producing conference events for professionals, executives and enthusiasts. Thank you to Digital Hollywood for working with SAG-AFTRA again this year to make Digital Hollywood accessible and inspiring for industry executives and creative artists alike.

NEW YORK, NY (MAY 31, 2016) – The Film Society of Lincoln Center
Subway Cinema announced today the complete lineup for the 15th NEW
YORK ASIAN FILM FESTIVAL (NYAFF), which will take place from June
22 to July 5 at the Film Society and July 6 to 9 at the SVA Theatre
(333 West 23rd Street). North America’s leading festival of popular
Asian cinema will showcase 51 feature films, including one World
Premiere, one International Premiere, 16 North American premieres, 2 U.S.
Premieres, and 14 films making their New York City debuts.
celebrity guests from Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia.
The Opening Night gala will be the World Premiere of Kazuya Shiraishi’s wild crime epic _Twisted Justice_,based on Yoshiaki Inaba’s autobiography and starring Japan’s hottest actor (and Rising Star honoree) Go Ayano as his country’s most corrupt police detective.
The Centerpiece Gala is the North American Premiere of Ralston Jover’s Hamog_ (Haze), an empowering, thrilling and impassioned tale of a gang of street kids, headlined by (Rising Star honoree) Teri Malvar.
“We set out this year to champion a much broader range of Asian cinema,” said NYAFF Executive Director Samuel Jamier. “For example, we are particularly excited by a new breed of noir film, rooted in social issues, that is emerging in both China and Southeast Asia. With these and other selections in the lineup, we want to show that Asian films are still exploring new directions for world cinema.”
Faithful to its Chinatown roots and central to its lineup, the festival will feature a HONG KONG PANORAMA, showcasing the most innovative films from the Special Administrative Region, with the support of Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office New York. From a
coming-of-age drama about high-school girls who become involved in the sex trade (_Lazy Hazy Crazy_), to a feel-good baseball movie set within Hong Kong’s public-housing system (_Weeds on Fire_), to a hard-boiled gangster omnibus (the Johnnie To-produced_Triviṣa_),
these films are revitalizing local genre staples with a fresh spin.
The program also includes Nick Cheung’s _Keeper of Darkness_,
Herman Yau’s _The Mobfathers_, and Adam Wong’s _She Remembers, He Forgets_.
THE SOUTH KOREAN CINEMA lineup includes a vibrant mix of thrillers (both supernatural and surreal) from first- and second-time directors that are daring twists on genre films (_Alone_, _The Boys Who Cried Wolf_, and_ The Priests_), and insightful art-house dramas focusing on social issues from established directors (Jung Ji-woo’s _Fourth
Place_ about how much we demand from the next generation, and E J-yong’s
_The Bacchus Lady _about the plight of the country’s abandoned elderly).
In co-presentation with the Korean Movie Night New York Master Series, NYAFF will feature the two latest films by Lee Joon-ik, who will attend screenings of _Dongju: The Portrait of a Poet_ (with producer and screenwriter Shin Yeon-shick) and _The Throne_. Together with Lee Jong-pil’s _The Sound of a Flower_, the triptych examines the scars
of South Korea’s troubled history. The festival’s 11 South Korean films are presented with the support of the Korean Cultural Center New York.
NYAFF’s TAIWAN CINEMA NOW! section defies genres with first films by
new directors Adam Tsuei (_The Tenants Downstairs_), Vic Cheng (_The Tag-Along_), and Lee Chung (_The Laundryman_) that expand the horizons of the island’s genre cinema. The section, presented with the support of the Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York, is completed by two powerful dramas from established filmmakers Tom Lin (_Zinnia Flower_) and Cheng Wen-tang (_Maverick_) that explore loss and redemption.
SOUTHEAST ASIAN CINEMA receives greater focus this year, reflecting how the region is making some of the world’s most innovative films.
Highlights include the Tamil-language _Jagat _(_Brutal_) from Malaysia, the acutely observed _Heart Attack_ from Thailand, and empowering youth noir _Haze (Hamog) _from the Philippines. Proving that stars from the region are just as glamorous and talented as
their Northern neighbors, we are joined by John Lloyd Cruz, Teri Malvar, Sid Lucero, Gwen Zamora, and Annicka Dolonius (stars of the Philippines’ sensuous surfing drama _Apocalypse Child_), and Apinya Sakuljaroensuk (from the social-media slasher flick _Grace_).
SPECIAL SCREENINGS include a full day of films on July 4 from noon until midnight celebrating the indie spirit of Hong Kong cinema.
The day will conclude with the hotly anticipated _10 Years_, winner of Best Film at the Hong Kong Film Awards, which examines life in Hong Kong in an imaginary future when Cantonese is a second-class language and where the island has completely fallen under Mainland control.
The 2016 STAR ASIA AWARDS honorees are Hong Kong’s Miriam Yeung, the Philippines’ John Lloyd Cruz, and South Korea’s Lee Byung-hun, and all three box-office mega-stars will be in New York in person to discuss their newest films and their careers. Yeung, whose charismatic girl-next-door persona epitomizes the anything-is-possible spirit of Hong Kong, stars in in Adam Wong’s romantic drama _She Remembers, He Forgets. _The film is her return to the screen after headlining the biggest local hit of 2015, _Little Big Master_. Cruz, the Philippines’ most popular movie star, who broke box-office records in last year’s romantic drama _Second Chance_, transforms his image as a father who will do anything in festival selection _Honor Thy Father_,a powerful crime epic from Erik Matti. Lee, South Korean cinema’s leading man and one of the few to successfully cross over to Hollywood, stars in _Inside Men_, Woo Min-ho’s takedown of the corruption at the heart of South Korea’s institutions. Lee has been seen in multiple blockbuster action franchises (_G.I. Joe, Red 2, Terminator Genisys_), is best known for South Korean films _The Good, the Bad, the Weird_, _I Saw the Devil_, and _Bittersweet Life _(by Kim Jee-woon); as well as the tormented soldier in Park Chan-wook’s_ Joint Security Area_ and the lowlife-turned-king in Choo Chang-min’s _Masquerade_.
IN ADDITION TO THE STAR ASIA AWARDS, PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED AWARD
· LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD – IWAI SHUNJI. The first Japanese recipient of the award, he will present his three cinematic epics–_Swallowtail Butterfly _(1996), _All About Lily Chou-Chou_ (2001), and _A Bride for Rip Van Winkle_ (2016), also starring
Ayano–during the festival’s opening weekend. Iwai has proven himself one of Asia’s most influential filmmakers since his mid-1990s Undo_, _Picnic_, and _Love Letter_. He is recognized for capturing the spirit of the times, and stretching the cinematic language of Asian cinema. Despite his early successes, he has continued to reinvent himself, recently directing his first animated feature.
· SCREEN INTERNATIONAL RISING STAR ASIA AWARDS – CHINA’S
JELLY LIN, JAPAN’S AYANO GO, AND THE PHILIPPINES’ TERI MALVAR.
Lin made a powerful debut this year, showcasing her natural comedic
skills in Stephen Chow’s fish-out-of-water tale (China’s highest-grossing
film) _The Mermaid_; 15-year-old Malvar has already proven herself one
of Asia’s most naturally gifted actresses, and stars in festival selection _Hamog _(_Haze_), in which her violent street kid character is kidnapped into a twisted household to work as its maid; and Ayano, Japan’s hottest actor of 2016 is being recognized for his
chameleon-like range, stars in two of the festival’s key films, Twisted Justice_ and _A Bride for Rip Van Winkle_.
· DANIEL A. CRAFT AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN ACTION CINEMA – YUE SONG. The Chinese actor, director, and stunt choreographer will be honored for his old-school, balls-to-the-wall instant-classic kung-fu flick _The Bodyguard_. Yue found fame online by uploading action-packed training videos and short films that became cult hits in China, before making his first feature _King of the Street_. His new film has found a natural home in our anniversary edition.
_Curated by executive director Samuel Jamier, senior programmer Stephen Cremin, and programmers Rufus de Rham and Claire Marty. _
The New York Asian Film Festival is co-presented by Subway Cinema and the Film Society of Lincoln Center and takes place from June 22 to July 5 at Film Society’s Walter Reade Theater, and July 6 to 9 at SVA Theatre.
