Brooklyn Girl Film Festival Goes on Haitus
For the past four years I’ve had the pleasure of organizing and curating the art of some amazing women from all over the world. Behind their films were incredible stories of the blood, sweat and tears that they put into their projects. I’ll carry this inspiration to my own project that I will spend the remainder of this year and next year working on.
To allow me to focus on creating, I am putting the festival on a hiatus. I’m sad to announce that there will be no BGFF2016.
If you want to submit to a fabulous women’s film festival in the NYC area, I suggest the Athena Film Festival at Barnard College. They are a festival of a similar scope and mission. Please support them!
I will keep you all updated on my project and it’s progress as it becomes available. And of course, I will let you know how things evolve with Brooklyn Girl and what the future has in store for it.
