My second directorial project, Seagull, was an official selection at the LA Femme International Film Festival. The festival was fantastic! I watched documentaries I learned from and still thinking about and narrative shorts and features that gave me new insight and pathways for story telling. The filmmakers themselves were friendly and engaging. The panels were best part of the festival. In particular, the How to Pitch Panel, in which audience members had the opportunity to practice pitching to the panelists. I pitched The Vendetta of Felipe Espinosa, the novel about America's first serial killer and foreign terrorist. I received positive feedback and excellent pointers I can take with me in the future. Thank you panelists :)
I also had the immense pleasure of seeing old friends! Treasured the festival experience and look forward to the next one.
Bringing a little more Xanadu into the world.
