Legendary record producer Clive Davis attended the newportFILM Outdoors Summer Series last night, in order to discuss the new documentary about his career, ‘Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of our Lives.’ The special screening, which was presented by newportFILM and Newport Folk, was introduced by the Grammy Award-winning music industry executive.
During his pre-screening speech, Davis stated: “I am thrilled to have the documentary on my life shown at newportFILM. I’m well aware of the legendary history of the Newport Folk Festival, and it will truly be an honor to be a participant this year.”
The sold out Newport Folk Festival kicks off its three day music festival today. ‘Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of our Lives,’ which was edited and directed by Chris Perkel, will be distributed in theaters and on Apple Music this fall. The official release and screening during the newportFILM Outdoors Summer Series comes after the movie opened this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
