Cynthia’s most recent short film, THE SHALLOW END, written by acclaimed playwright Wendy MacLeod and based on her one-act play of the same title, was an Official Selection at the 2019 Adirondack Film Festival, Indie Memphis Film Festival, the recipient of the Silver Whiskers Award at IndieWorks NY, and will continue its festival run in 2020. She is currently in development for MELISSA, her second collaboration with writer and lead actor of CHEMISTRY, Charlotte Martin.
