Real Talk with Leading Ladies featuring COVEN Film Festival's Women in Film.
We are thrilled to feature this month's Real Leading Ladies of the COVEN Film Festival.
Join us as we screen three short films from a few of this year's participants followed by a Q&A session.
Connie Jo Sechrist, COVEN Film Festival Co-Founder and Producer.
Danielle Karagannis, Filmmaker - A Day: An endearing child, Kit, goes about her typical routine amongst a rapidly changing Hollywood.
Foster Wilson, Filmmaker - Platypus: Armed with an electric mixer, a Mysterious Woman gives Naked Man the battering of his life, but the sexy interrogation brings up feelings that are hard to swallow. Can she have her cake and eat it too? Or will love turn her batter bitter?
Kelsy Lua, Filmmaker - Please Translate: Please Translate explores how language divides but eventually bridges the relationship between a mother and her daughter. In a film about sacrifice and a mother's love, they come to realize how special their bond truly is.
Yin Yin Liow, Lead Actress from Please Translate. This year's winner of the Emerging Talent Award at COVEN.
ABOUT COVEN FILM FESTIVAL
The COVEN Film Festival is a Charming Stranger Films, LLC production, devoted to films by emerging women and non-binary filmmakers from the San Francisco Bay Area and around the world.
This event spotlights women and non-binary storytellers, and recognizes that not every person is young, white, middle-class, cisgender, or able-bodied. Their mission is to amplify these stories—emphasizing indigenous, differently-abled and people of color—told by women or non-binary creators.
