Submitted by Seth Rogovoy ( >

(Great Barrington, Mass., April 24, 2006) - Kelley Vickery, the director of the Berkshire International Film Festival, will be the featured guest at "Sneak Preview," on Sunday, May 7, at 11 a.m., at the Triplex Cinema, part of "The Rest of the Story" series, the free public forum co-presented by Berkshire Living and the Triplex. The event will offer an advance look at the inaugural Berkshire International Film Festival taking place the next weekend, May 12-14, at various locations throughout Southern Berkshire.

The forum, moderated by Berkshire Living editor-in-chief Seth Rogovoy, will include trailers of movies that will be screened during the festival, as well as previews of the features, documentaries, short films, panel discussions, workshops, musical events, and tributes comprising the festival. Vickery will also discuss the planning behind the festival and explain the process that went into selecting the films, which include many regional and national premieres, including Robert Altman's "Prairie Home Companion."

Each month, the Triplex and Berkshire Living, an award-winning regional lifestyle and culture magazine, join forces to present free public forums based on an article running in the concurrent issue of the magazine. The festival is the subject of an article in the May issue of Berkshire Living, on newsstands now, profiling Pittsfield, Mass.,-native Mike Haley, an Emmy Award-winning producer and first assistant director who will be honored by film legend Mike Nichols for his work in over 60 films during his 40-year career in films, including "Angels in America," "Closer," "Groundhog Day," and "A League of Their Own."
