So proud of my friend & fab studio mate, Luisa Dantas & her students for their work. In sad (or perfect) timing, they screened this yesterday. Our thoughts are with all who were affected by the horrific Mother’s Day violence that took place in our city. We need to continue working with our children… change can and will happen.

Production Assistants. Editors. Location Scouts. Executives. Gaffers. Production Coordinators. Actors. Shooters. Script Supervisors. Costume Designers. Mentors. Audio Mixers. Lawyers. Students. Stuntwomen. Writers. We are collaborators. We are all unique. This is an opportunity to share our stories.
Women in Film & Television Louisiana is delighted to announce that we will be mounting an exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Center in July 2013, titled A Woman’s Work, which celebrates in moving pictures the work of women in film, television and digital media in Louisiana.
A Woman’s Work, co-curated by WIFT Louisiana and the CAC, will include the exhibition of moving image work – films, videos and new media - made by women in Louisiana. WIFT Louisiana is currently accepting submissions of short or long-form projects for consideration as part of this exhibition. The work can be from any time period and we encourage the submission of works in progress. The exhibition is meant to show the process of work in this industry and the films submitted need not be finished. We welcome works in progress and documentation of a day-in-a-life, “making-of,” and behind-the-scenes of films in production as well as completed work.
All work will be reviewed and selected by the curatorial committee. The final deadline to receive submissions is Thursday, May 16, 2013. The deadline is tight so please submit ASAP. Submissions must have been produced in the state of Louisiana. There is no restriction as to when production occurred. It is not necessary to be a WIFT Louisiana member to participate, but we encourage all eligible women to join by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please send a link to your submission to email@example.com with the word SUBMISSION in the subject line. OR A DVD of your submission to 828 Royal St #269, NOLA 70116. If selected, you will need to provide a high-resolution .mov file of the project.

Our awesome friends and studio mates, Land of Opportunity, are announcing a new partnership with NY Mediamakers and activists Sandy Storyline. This collaboration will explore the time-space continuum of disaster recovery and reconstruction in an urban setting by comparing post-Katrina New Orleans and post-Sandy New York City. To kick it off, we’re co-releasing a joint video TOMORROW, April 30th via Facebook.
