on

LAS VEGAS /PRNewswire/ — UNLV Sports Innovation and Syracuse University’s David B. Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics, in collaboration with the Las Vegas-based guest experience agency Circle, proudly announce the launch of SEI-Con — a first of its kind Sports, Entertainment & Innovation Conference hosting thought leaders and subject matter experts from across the globe to educate, collaborate and create dynamic ventures together. 

The inaugural conference will be held in Las Vegas at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas with an opening reception July 15, and the three-day conference July 16-18, 2024. The event will include exhibitor pods, innovation labs, daily keynotes, seminars/sessions, roundtables, and daily wrap parties with music entertainment.

“There has been momentum building in the area of professional sports throughout Southern Nevada in recent years, and the economic growth that comes along with it is undeniable,” said UNLV President Keith E. Whitfield. “Through business and workforce development, and of course innovation, UNLV is a key partner in this growth, and SEI-Con is the latest example of our collaborative work to reinforce Las Vegas’ reputation as the world leader in tourism, sports, and entertainment.”

Analysts predict the global sports market to reach $2 trillion, which is 2% of the $100 trillion world’s economy, bolstered by an influx of money from new sources, emerging technologies, and growing demand. Already the entertainment capital of the world, Las Vegas has become an emerging sports destination and is perfectly positioned to host an annual conference focused on the intersection of sports, entertainment, and innovation.

“The opportunity for our students to work on this world-class event captures the essence of our experiential-based academic programs,” says Michael Veley, founding Director and Chair and Rhonda S. Falk Endowed Professor in the Department of Sport Management in Falk College. “We, along with our nationally acclaimed advisory council of industry executives, fully embrace the collaboration with UNLV’s premier programs, the creative genius of Circle, and business partners and sports entities in one of the most dynamic sports and entertainment markets in the world.”

Attendees will have opportunities to meet industry executives and explore the latest innovations in sports and entertainment, esports and gaming, sports sociology and diversity, broadcast brands and media, research and development, and more.

“Through collaborations with academic partners, and the sports and entertainment industry, we are training the next generation of sports scientists and sports business professionals through interdisciplinary education and research” said UNLV Sports Innovation COO Jay Vickers. “SEI-Con will produce opportunities for education and collaboration that will result in unprecedented deal making that will undeniably have a positive impact for our universities, students, and the sports and entertainment industry.”

The event will also recognize leadership in sports, entertainment, and academia, and connect audiences dedicated to the future of these industries.

“We are eager to display the work being done by our faculty directly in sports, including innovative programs in sport management, sport analytics, and our newest program in esports, plus other elements of the college such as sports-related research in exercise science, nutrition, and other areas,” said Rodney Paul, Director of the Sport Analytics Program and a Professor in the Department of Sport Management at Falk College. “We are most excited, however, to show off our greatest asset, our students, on the world stage in the great city of Las Vegas.”

Lucía Forner Segarra Delves Into the Dark Corners of Retribution in “BERTA,” Premiering at Fantasia Film Festival

“Berta” reveals the dark side of vengeance through feminist horror. Premiering at Fantasia Film Festival. #BERTAFilm

Published

on


(Montreal, CANADA) – This July, the Fantasia International Film Festival is set to unveil a gripping addition to its illustrious lineup with the world premiere of “BERTA,” a new feminist horror short by the critically acclaimed Spanish filmmaker Lucía Forner Segarra. Following the successful footsteps of “MARTA” and “DANA,” Segarra completes her formidable trilogy that compellingly dissects themes of violence, vengeance, and introspection through a distinctly feminist lens.

Inside “BERTA”

Slated for its debut on Sunday, July 28th, 2024, “BERTA” introduces us to the eponymous character, played by the talented Nerea Barros. The film thrusts us into the complicated emotional tapestry of its protagonist, a woman who decides to confront her past tormentor. Berta’s confrontation is depicted with unorthodox methods that blur the moral lines between justice and revenge, making audiences ponder the depths one can go to achieve a sense of closure.

Lucía Forner Segarra shares her insights on the narrative, “’BERTA’ explores the critical act of confronting one’s monster; a figure that remains unscathed and guilt-free, living a life of normalcy after causing profound hurt. I crafted this narrative to include elements of dark humor amidst these severe themes to provide a cathartic release from the tension, a storytelling technique I find quite essential.”

A Festival Favorite

“BERTA” has already stirred significant excitement amongst festival goers and critics alike. Mitch Davis, the Artistic Director of the Fantasia International Film Festival, praised the film, “Lucía Forner Segarra continues to impress with her visionary approach and daring narrative choices. ‘BERTA’ not only captivates but enriches her already remarkable trilogy. The intertextual screams involving past characters DANA and MARTA were a stoke of genius, threading a deeper connection across her works.”

The film, with a runtime of 17 minutes, not only showcases Forner Segarra’s directorial prowess but also highlights an exceptional ensemble including Elías González and a cameo by Thais Blume, Segarra’s long-time muse. Behind the scenes, the film’s artistic essence is elevated by Claudia Rodríguez’s cinematography and the haunting original score by Joan Vilà.

What’s Next for “BERTA”?

As “BERTA” makes its mark at Fantasia, the film is poised for further acclaim with its potent storytelling and innovative execution. The short’s themes and visceral emotional resonance are likely to ignite discussions and resonate long after the festival lights dim.

For those eager for an early glimpse, the trailer for “BERTA” can be viewed here.

Connect with the Film

Fans and curious newcomers can connect with Lucía Forner Segarra and keep updated with “BERTA’s” journey through various platforms:

Lucía Forner Segarra’s “BERTA” promises not just to entertain but to provoke thought, stir emotions, and challenge societal norms. It’s a cinematic experience that dares to confront the unpleasant, making it a must-watch for those who dare to dive deep. Get ready, Montreal, for a film that bravely tackles the complex intersections of horror and feminism, all wrapped into a tightly knit, exhilarating 17-minute package.
