Big Apple, here we come!We intended to only send these out about once a month, but the news is rolling in! Here's the latest.
Next week, Dr. Roberta Hunte and I will be traveling to New York City to screen with the African American Women in Cinema Festival on Thursday, March 24th at 9:45 a.m. (this time was just changed on 3/23 by the festival!) If you're there or know anyone there, please help us spread the word (or come out and say hello)!
More upcoming screenings:
April 3rd at 11: 45 a.m. at Through A Woman's Eyes as part of the Sarasota Film Festival in Sarasota, Florida.
April 16th at 8 p.m. at WAMMFest in Towson, Maryland.
April 19th, we'll be holding a screening in Portland with Metro featuring a special discussion about workforce diversity. It's during the day, but if you are interested in these issues and would like to attend, please contact me so I can provide the details.
On April 29th, Roberta, Sidony O'neal (our amazing lead) and I will travel to Chicago to the international tradeswoman conference called Women Building Nations for a special screening of the film for conference attendees. We love sharing the film in general, but this will be a unique event for us!
Thanks for reading and supporting. We are working to set up a few screenings in Portland and we have more news coming so stay tuned!

As the newest member of the Oregon Media Production Association and because of our recent award as Best Oregon Short Film, I somehow managed to get an invite to the signing of the new film incentives Bill 1507 with Governor Kate Brown. The signing was held at Laika Studios. When I met the governor, I had thirty seconds to tell her about the film and pressed one of our business cards into her hand. Let us know when you're ready to watch the film, Governor!
