TIFF 2013 Interview: Mark Peranson on La Ultima Pelicula, the filmmaking process, and his journey within the world of movies.
Mark Peranson is the editor and publisher of the magazine Cinema Scope and has been a programming associate for the Vancouver International Film Festival since 1999. In 2008 he directed Waiting for Sancho, a making-of documentary on Albert Serra’s film El cant dels ocells. He has been a programmer for the Festival del film Locarno since 2010. He is also a director, writer, and producer. In his latest effort Peranson teamed up with Filipino director Raya Martin to make La Ultima Pelicula, a film about making the last movie during the Mayan apocalypse (a sort of remake of Dennis Hopper’s The Last Movie).
