Showcasing the best of female talent. Filmmakers and Screenwriters
Director Biography – Brittany Delgaty (THE COLD)
Brittany grew up in the small city of Niagara Falls where she graduated high school with a high-skills major in Videography and Photography. From there, she moved to Ottawa and completed the Graphic Design Program at Algonquin College. She quickly found herself again behind the camera and is now a creative director with a video production company called Cloud in the Sky Studios and a partner at it’s sister company, K. Collective. Her skills in design are incorporated in the work she produces, from poster creation to generating assets for social media. Getting her hands dirty in all aspects of filmmaking is what gives Brittany well-rounded experience and confidence to complete any task. Her passion for story-telling and writing motivates her to continue creating short-stories with the hopes of directing and producing a feature length film one day.
Directing and producing this short film with a very small budget was both a challenge and the greatest filmmaking experience for me yet. I hope to continue creating cinematic experiences and inspire others to tell their stories.
The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes.
Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival.
This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way.
When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival.
A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
