Seeing is Believing: Women Direct

This is a fair article about obstacles women still face in show business. It's STILL a different lens, even though there are a few more open eyes, a few more opportunities.

It seems so obvious but it bears repeating: we should be measured by ability, not by the body we flew in on.

Hey Pals! Be sure to follow CHERRY PICKS on FB, a female identifying/non-binary movie review site. It's terrific!
"As women, we consume more than half the media in the world. And newsflash: we’ve also got opinions. That’s why we made CherryPicks: the best place to see what women think about movies and more. We create a unique score based on reviews from female and non-binary voices, so whether you’re looking for a night out, or a night on the couch, you know the opinions you trust come from women like you."

VERY excited about these two panels coming up at the Downtown LA Film Festival on October 26th!

Panel #1 is at 1PM-2PM in the mezzanine at the LA Regal LIVE. This group is INCREDIBLE. Producers who have done over 40 films, been to Sundance, SXSW... TWO Distribution gurus and two indie filmmakers who's work has been lauded and distributed on all platforms... from self distributors to having top studios pick up films... all will be discussed and MORE!

Panel #2 is at 2:30PM-3:30PM and is in the same location. Discussions about inclusivity and how to be proactive in your creative choices will be discussed! Some amazing panelists as well!

Both panels are FREE!

4PM will be the screening of "Seeing is Believing: Women Direct" Tickets are $15... If you are feeling the squeeze DM me and I will see if I can get some discounted tix for you and your party. (Trust me... I GET IT.) We have some incredibly people joining us including Deborah Riley Draper, who is the director on "Coffee Will Make You Black" with Octavia Spencer and Gabrielle Union!
