Ridgefield Independent Film Festival
Festival Director
Ridgefield, CT
I have just completed my first year as the Festival Director at the Ridgefield Independent Film Festival. It was exhilarating, terrifying, exhausting, and a lot of fun. And I did it all with a badly broken foot. We showed 103 films (72 were shorts) from 20 countries, hosted 31 filmmakers, gave out $7500 in awards and filmmaker support. We achieved our goal of 50/50 filmmaker gender parity (Yay!) and were supported by the community. While I'm pleased with the festival's success, I still have a lot to learn about marketing and promotion, youth engagement, building relationships with distributors, and growing our patron base. I'm truly looking forward to connecting with other Film Festival and Art House directors and learning from your successes. On a personal note, I am also a documentary filmmaker and a number of my films have screened across the U.S. and around the world. I'm also a magazine editor and a playwright. In my 20s I was an actress in Canada and worked in television, film, and radio. I co-hosted one of the wrost game shows every seen on television anywhere. Friends, family, food, wine, nature, dogs, books, art, and creativity in all it's many forms make me happy.
