What a fantastic week!
I just got back from the Big Bear Lake International Film Festival only to find out that Another Life made Official Selection at our 12th Film Festival, the Lady Filmmakers Film Festival -- and that my screenplay Furious Angels made Finalist at the Page International Screenwriting Awards!
The Lady Filmmakers Film Festival celebrates the cinematic achievements of women in glamorous Beverly Hills! Not just for ladies, the festival will host an exciting weekend packed with movies, music, panels, and parties, all with talented filmmakers and talent-seeking industry veterans in attendance.
At long last, all of our L.A.-based fans can see Another Life on the silver screen!
We play at the prestigious WGA Theatre in Beverly Hills (135 S. Doheny Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210) some time from Friday, Oct. 14 through Sunday, Oct. 16, our showtime TBD.
I'd like to take a moment to thank our lady filmmakers: lead actress Tracy Coogan; producers Liz Manashil, Mitsuyo Miyazaki, Min Zhang; editor Beth Moody; production designer Jill Blackledge; casting director Cheryl Faye; make-up artist Mara Rouse; sound designers Rebecca Chan and Kari Barber; and costume designer Sarah Springer -- without your amazing talent and hard work, Another Life simply would not be the amazing film it is today.
I will certainly be in attendance at the festival in Beverly Hills -- and hope to see you all there! I'll slip you more details on the fest's exciting developments as they come...
And, oh yes, more on The PAGE International Screenwriting Awards!
A quick refresher: the PAGE Awards was established by an alliance of Hollywood producers, agents, and development execs to discover the most exciting new scripts by up-and-coming writers from across the country and around the world -- with loads of Success Stories.
And making Finalist means that a panel of Hollywood literary agents, managers, and development execs rated my work as one of the Top 10 action screenplays submitted!
Win or lose, it looks like talent-seeking Hollywood folks enjoy my work!
Just when I thought things were slowing back down, I am so awed and grateful for all the love and support from friends, family, and fans that keeps Another Life and my writing marching onward to bigger and better things. Thank you all!
Oh, yes, and as for the Agent story -- my script has been passed along from the Agent to a colleague who's considering working with me -- so keep your fingers crossed!
