LA-Based Italian Filmmaker To Host Preview Screening Of New Short Film, Other Indepent Shorts At Universal Studios

(LOS ANGELES – DEC. 10, 2012) – Italian filmmaker Leo Foti and his new film production company, Se7en Waves Entertainment, will host a preview screening of his latest Sundance submission, ?Tipping Point,? alongside three other short films on Friday, December 14, 2012 at 8:30 p.m.

Filmed in Los Angeles and New York, ?Tipping Point? is a 14-minute montage of human existence that converges at one single moment in time. The short film highlights various tenants of a New York City brownstone wherein some are fighting, others struggle with their own humanity, one loses his temper, another wells up with the emotion of single parenthood, all while a couple basks in the intimacy of one another when all of a sudden one simple act of fate shows to each the true meaning of their relationships with themselves or with another human being.

The three featured short films include ?Exode? by Canadian-American filmmaker Nathaniel Siri, ?Art in the Afternoon? by Mitra Avani, and ?Love, NY? by Vincent Lin, who won the ?Best Director Award? and the ?Audience Award? from NBC Universal Short Cuts alongside three other awards for ?Best Short Film,? ?Best Short Romantic Comedy? and the ?Grand Jury Award.?

The Se7en Waves Entertainment public screenings take place at Universal Studios, 100 Universal City Plaza, Universal City, CA 91608 at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, December 14, 2012. Please RSVP to leofoti3@gmail.com to ensure attendance and free parking.
