Equinista L.A. Pomeroy Joins 2015 Equus Film Festival NYC
Northampton, MA (January 21, 2015) L.A. Pomeroy, publicist and equinista (fashionista + equestrienne), has joined the organizing committee for the 2015 Equus Film Festival, the world’s only film festival dedicated to the horse and slated to return this November to New York City with an expanded program of films and equestrian fine art.
“I am to the moon to join Festival Creator, Lisa Diersen, and its film community,” says Pomeroy. “After covering last year’s event, I came away convinced this has incredible potential to become the Sundance or Tribeca of our horse world and reach new, untapped markets of grassroots enthusiasm. It’s an honor to be a part of this showcase in the ‘Big Apple.’ Location, location, location. If it can make it here, it can make it anywhere.”
The Equus Film Festival highlights and awards the diverse and creative efforts of those in independent filmmaking, music, theatre, art and advertising who pay artistic homage to the horse. The screened content further helps show the rich history and diverse tapestry of the horse in human history, culture, media and the arts.
The Equus Film Festival galloped into New York City for the first time last November into Harlem’s MIST Theatre, hosting 119 films and videos and presenting its equivalent of equine ‘Oscars’ in 14 categories including best Equestrian Music Video, Commercial, Documentary, Art Film, International Film, Director, Native American Film, People’s Choice and Best of Festival.
“By bringing the Equus Film Festival to New York City, we have further brought to light the exceptional dedication and fresh talent found in both independent film and the equestrian community,” says Lisa Dierson, Festival Creator.
A contributing equestrian lifestyle, arts and fashion editor for publications including Elite Equestrian (official magazine of the Ocala Horse Park) and columnist behind His & Hers: Stylish Conversations, Pomeroy will help coordinate the debut of the 2015 Festival’s equestrian fine art show. “Having organized prior successful exhibitions of horse artists, and their selection for covers of national championship show programs, I can bring a deep pool of talent to the table,” says Pomeroy, whose own background includes Harvard Graduate School of Arts & Sciences studies in art and visual design, and film script analysis.
