Last night was the official ceremony at Time Warner in New York. We won the Spirit Award and I received a citation from the City of New York deeming me "worthy of esteem!" Wow! They take their film seriously here!! Thank you to Reel Sisters for all the support and most importantly, for highlighting the struggle of tradeswomen of color!

We have been accepted to an Oscar-qualifying festival!!! Sista in the Brotherhood will screen at the St. Louis International Film Festival on November 6th at 2 pm! Out of 7,000 festivals world wide, only 63 have this accreditation and only 26 of them are in the United States. Needless to say, we're EXCITED!! Help us spread the word if you know anyone in St. Louis, please. Director Dawn Jones Redstone will attend.
We're delighted to announce that we won Best Short Film at the Local Sightings Film Festival by Northwest Film Forum in Seattle. Judges Paula Bernstein, contributing editor to Filmmaker Magazine, Sudeep Sharma, film programmer and media scholar, and Khalik Allah, New York based filmmaker and photographer.
It was amazing just to meet these people whom I have tremendous respect for, but over the top to have them watch Sista and be moved enough to vote it Best Film. Thank you Northwest Film Forum and thank you, jurors!
