IIPMF 2017 JURORS
OUR JURY IS THE CROWN JEWEL OF THE FESTIVAL
International Independent Permanent Memories Festival (IIPMF) will create opportunities for new and emerging work in the cinematic arts because its JURY is comprised of working professionals & specialists of each field in the industry, and winners will get access to a concrete chance to find a worldwide distribution. The IIPM was conceived by Michael Segal (italian actor and producer), who fell in love with cinema as a child and wanted to help independents to have a chance to be noticed. IIPMF is distinguished by its jurors, all active professionals in the film, television & web industries. Represented experience ranges from low budget independent projects to high budget Hollywood productions & blockbusters, from aspiring talent to Academy Awards winners. IIPMF will also be a marketplace for connecting independent producers, writers, actors and technicians with professionals in their fields and where potential working relationships may arise from this festival.

|DEBBIE ROCHON The titan of indie horror. Debbie Rochon is an actress by trade, sure, but as everyone who has worked with her knows, her energy and talent is magnetic and she often single-handedly elevates the often impoverished pictures she appears in. A street kid from Vancouver, Canada, Debbie found fame with Lloyd Kaufman’s Troma-verse, starring in films like Tromeo and Juliet and parlayed that success into a prolific career in front of the lens. Recently, Debbie took her talents behind the scenes and directed her first feature, this year’s satirical slaughter-fest Model Hunger. There’s no one harder working in this business than Debbie and, despite her being an indie icon, we think that often people don’t see just how first-rate a performer she is.|
