I’ve been at The Sundance Film Festival all week and just had an interesting experience. My very good friend, Geralyn White Dreyfous, with whom I have partnered on producing several films—Connected, Born into Brothels, Life on the Edge—is producing a new film, !Women Art Revolution, by Lynn Hershman Leeson which is playing at Sundance. Geralyn told me that after the question and answer for !Women Art Revolution, one of the audience members came to tell her that she should meet with the Director of Who Does She Think She Is? as “their outreach was so wide and successful.” She also told Geralyn that she had hosted a fifty person House Party viewing of Who Does She Think She Is?
I love this story. It is the story of connection, of passion and creativity. This new film, !Women Art Revolution, gives us the history of the invisibility of women’s art. I cannot wait to see it! (For more info about the film, click here.) And, evidently it will be playing all over the country soon. But, what is heartening to me, too, is that people who have seen our film and found Who Does She Think She Is? important, are connecting with the Producers of this new film. Even though we have struggled with getting our film into the typical distribution channels and larger film festivals, thanks to our fans we have still been able to get the word out about our film and it’s important message. Through our website, Youtube, and Facebook, we have connected with an audience that is still growing and continuing to tell others about our film.
Viva la internet. Viva la blogging world. Thanks to all of you!
