Thank you to everyone who attended the 39th Annual Muse Awards on Thursday! It was such an honor to receive the Made in NY Award from the Mayor’s Office of Media & Entertainment, and I was touched by how many of our members came out to support our organization (and give me a hug). My picks for this week:
Great Gifts: Big thanks to our friends at Kino Lorber, who are donating 10% of any online purchase of a DVD or BluRay made through this affiliate link to our own Women’s Film Preservation Fund. Learn more.
Online Festival: Check out all the films by NYWIFT members selected for our Second Annual Online Film Festival! You can see them now through February 28th on the GoIndieTV website, and they will also be available for a limited time on Roku starting mid-January. (It was fun to watch member Liz Samuel and Community Engagement Director Katie Chambers promote the festival on Cheddar Big News yesterday!)
Yvonne Russo: Another great interview with Start TV! Board member Yvonne Russo discusses the importance of representation onscreen and how stories shape the world around us.
