Gary Hill, a founding partner of film pr firm Falco Ink, passed away last week after a battle with kidney disease. A twenty-five year veteran of the entertainment industry, Hill left Falco two years ago to co-found the Berkshire International Film Festival. Hill began his career as an assistant to Brian DePalma, working on “Scarface,” “Blow Out” and “Dressed To Kill” and moved into PR in the 80s. In 1999, he left PR firm Clein + White with a group of partners to form Falco Ink. Hill retired from PR in 2005 to head to the Berkshires. “Serving on the BIFF board was a natural use of his love of film,” Falco said in a statement. “Hill had a deep knowledge of film and genuine love of film: from Alfred Hitchcock to Robert Altman, Billy Wilder to Tim Burton.” [Eugene Hernandez]
