  • It has been such an honour for A Woman's Voice to be selected to screen at the International New York Film Festival, and an even greater honour to be awarded Best Woman Producer. How incredible for that to happen with my first film, and how appropriate for it to be about women's empowerment. Thank you so very much for including us, and being such professional communicators!

  • It was great, it was a very worthwhile film festival, the atmosphere was like a family reunion, I really liked it, and it was so close to Lake Erie that we could go exclusively.
