“Harold Matzner: The Brilliant Enigma” from Palm Springs Life Magazine

Part 2 of Palm Springs Life Magazine’s profile of Harold Matzner focuses on the Palm Springs International Film Festival. With quotes from colleagues, fellow board members, friends, and family, writer David Lansing illustrates how Harold turned the film festival into the success it is today. 

In the article, titled “Harold Matzner: The Brilliant Enigma”, Harold credits his work ethic with driving the film festival, his publishing business, and his other initiatives. Harold is quoted,

“My mantra is, ‘Never give up, always push forward.’ I think that’s one of my major strengths — I just refuse to quit. I remember when I first started my business in New Jersey, I’d sleep in the men’s room at the printing plant. I’d get a couple of hours of sleep and then go back to work. And I did that for the first two or three years.”
