Check out the below announcement from the St. John's international Women's Film Festival - two March events:
The St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival is pleased to announce Scene & Heard in celebration of International Women’s Day. This two-day event features workshops plus a screening of International and Local Shorts.
Start your morning right at The Masonic Temple on March 7th at 10am and catch Cinetic Media’s Janet Brown. Janet will share her 10 years experience working in the media and entertainment industry and will focus on the new landscape of distribution to on-demand platforms worldwide. Janet has worked in development for Mission pictures in London and for Maguire Entertainment in L.A.. We are very excited to have her speak at our event.
Miriam Elchanan comes to us from Fabrication Films (L.A.) to discuss how “action sells” and how indie filmmakers can get a piece of it. What low-budget options are out there and what’s in it for women? Miriam explores this and other related topics in this session at The Masonic Temple on March 7th from 12:30 to 3:30pm (lunch is served at 12:30pm and is included with your ticket). Miriam brings over 10 years experience in International Film Distribution and is currently responsible for overseeing Fabrication Film’s worldwide film and television distribution opportunities, including theatrical releases.
On March the 8th we are presenting a series of local and international short films including Swallowed (Dir: Stephen Dunn), Rhonda’s Party (Dir: Ashley McKenzie), Four Sisters (Dir: Dana Warren), Touch (Dir: Jen McGowan), Unearthing the Pen (Dir: Carol Salter), Flawed (Dir: Andrea Dorfman), Knock Off (Dir: Rosanne Flynn), About Bieito’s Death (Dir: Xudit Casas), and local favourite Not Over Easy (Dir: Jordan Canning). Films will be shown at Memorial University’s Inco Theatre in partnership with the Department of Women’s Studies. Tickets are available at the door or as part of the Scene & Heard pass.
