    Due to a travel conflict, I wasn’t able to attend Film Girl Film Festival 2018, but I appreciated Andrea and her team’s communications. FGF 2018 was awesome enough to select two of my short-films for screening, and I fully support their mission of putting Women’s stories front and center. Wishing them continued growth and prosperity! :)

    Truly honored to have our film "Witches of Wonder" screen at Film Girl Film. And although we were unable to be there, we'll be sure to attend when we can whether or not we have another film there.

    I wasn't able to attend in person but I was thrilled to screen my film The Sunrise Storyteller here. Thanks to Melanie and her team for all their support. Cool name change too!
