  • The Rock 'n' Roll Film Festival was one of the firsts to screen my baby PHAT Girl. Two years later, Mildred is still showing the film love in screenings for Suicide Awareness Month. I was able to meet Mildred in person in Kenya during a poetry festival and she is an amazing woman in real life. I highly recommend this film festival. After screening, there's still a spirit of networking and strong connections
    to be made.
