Female Film Festival – Today’s Testimonial

Thank you SO much for this, what an amazing thing you guys are doing!! The actors all did so well, I had so much fun watching them bring it all to life.

– Anna Bielkheden (WALK OF SHAME)

Walk of Shame is a raw drama series about three female roommates in LA struggling to navigate the road to success and personal identity, smack in the middle of a booming social media era and a pending quarter life crisis. Over the course of ten episodes, we follow the complicated lives and relationships of a 26-year old personal trainer from Oklahoma with a raging Tomboy vs. Barbie complex (ASH), a 29-year old second generation immigrant MUA from Sherman Oaks with the goal of becoming a star beauty influencer (SKY), and a 25-year old aspiring actress from Denmark with an expiring student visa, desperate to make it at any cost (CLARA).

BAD FRUIT Short Film, Audience FEEDBACK from Nov. 2019 Female Film Festival

BAD FRUIT, 11min., Ireland, Documentary

Directed by Teresa Lavina

This is a film about the Tuam babies in Ireland. 796 babies were thrown in a septic tank, no proper burials, no prayers, no respect. The nuns have not yet apologised for their actions. This film is a testimony told by the survivors of Tuam mother and baby home, their experience and stories. I am publishing this with great respect for the victims, the survivors and Catherine Corless for the amount of time and work she has put into her cause trying to help the victims and having the voices of these babies heard.

PATRIK Short Film, Audience FEEDBACK from Nov. 2019 Female Film Festival

PATRIK, 10min., USA, Drama

Directed by Evgeniya Radilova

This is a story about an accomplished elderly actor who grew too old for our modern fast paced life and on his way to receiving his final and ultimate life time achievement recognition, he gets swallowed up by it mercilessly. It is a human story about trying to age gracefully while being pushed aside by the next generation. It is the real human connection, that Patrik receives in the end, which is the ultimate reward we can all only hope for in this lifetime.
