Kathleen McInnis' Work Brings Her Around the World
by Shelly Schoeneshoefer

One of my favorite moments at the 2018 Berlinale festival was meeting a highly energetic and very capable woman by the name of Kathleen McInnis who has a very different way of looking at the film industry. As she sat at ease in the café looking over to make sure that Alvaro Delgado-Aparicio L. who had the first viewing of his debut film, was comfortable with his interview she explained how she meets up with filmmakers around the world, takes a look at what they have and then helps them organize their information and ideas so that they can go on to another level and get the funding they need as well as the publicity to have successful film. She has worked for more than 25 years in the business and with many film festivals including Sundance film festival, Aspen film festival and the Seattle Film Festival among others around the world.  Her work is quite unique since she works as a festival strategist/press agent with the idea of long term goals at the same time as targeting publicity for filmmakers to get the most out of the new and up-coming audiences. As I met he she was supporting the Retablo film team by getting them interviews, making sure they were on time and were prepared for being on stage. She also had worked with the Flame and the Silk crew but they were managing on their own at the festival.  She is the CEO of See Through films company with two other employees. She has taught at several schools such as UCLA School of Film, Television, and Theater, NYU Tisch School of the Arts/Asia- Singapore and currently Brooklyn College and USC: she is clearly a mentor for some of us who would like to have a job in the film business.
