5th Annual "Ladies 'Film' Night Out"
Join local film and media professionals and film aficionados at the 5th annual event celebrating female filmmakers in Arizona, Ladies Film Night Out! This year's popular film event will be held on Friday, November 16, at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts in Scottsdale, Arizona!
Were excited to announce that this years event features a special guest speaker - Producer Amanda Melby, whose feature film, Raising Buchanan, which was shot in Arizona with local cast and crew, is currently in post production. Amanda will speak on making the leap from shorts to producing a feature and the differences between the two which go way beyond the length of the finished product!
Be sure to join us in the spacious lobby for socializing and networking with a hot and cold appetizer buffet from 5:30 to 7:00 pm (buffet included with purchase of event ticket; cash bar available). Then head in to Stage 2 at 7:00 pm for the program of short films and our guest speaker, an intermission with dessert, and more shorts followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers while you vote for your favorite film. The evening wraps with the presentation of the Audience Favorite award, and more networking with film pros and invited guests!
Shorts were submitted from around the state, which were then viewed and scored by a judging panel comprised of women film pros in Arizona. The main criteria for the submissions was that at least one of the following key positions was held by a woman - Producer, Director, Director of Photography, Editor, or Screenwriter. A total of 38 shorts were submitted, with the following selected to be screened at this years event, in no particular order:
"Between the Lines," Elizabeth Grace
"Escape Claws," Lisette Perez
"Body Love," Linette Shorr
"Fire and Water: Restoring Arizona's Forests," Kristin Atwell
"A Blind Date," Angelina Ramirez
"Cosplay vs. the World," Katie Owens / Vic Rincon
"Mr. Memento," Misty Wilson
"Wish, Inc.," Diane Dresback
"Cargo," Cassandra Nicholson
"The Secret Life of Teachers," Judith Eisenberg
While this is a "don't miss" night for ladies, men are also encouraged and welcome to attend.
