WAMMFest strives to celebrate and encourage women and minorities to be involved in media production. So great to represent for them! Check it out:

Official Selection at the Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival

I am so happy to announce that Cutting Up is an official selection at this year’s Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival. This is its first film festival appearance. Cutting Up will screen along with a collection of short films on Tuesday, December 4th at 4:15PM at the historic New Beverly Cinema in West Hollywood.

I am so proud of my wonderful crew and what we were able to create by telling the stories of such incredible women. Lenda, Cary, and Cheryl and the countless competitors and supporters who we’ve met along the way have been such an inspiration. I’m thrilled that more people will get to see this film and learn about the amazing feats of female bodybuilders.  If you are in the L.A. area and will be able to attend the festival screening, we would love to see you there.
