I make films like a girl

I make films like a girl. Well maybe not me, personally. See last night, Thursday, August 18, 2016, instead of hosting my weekly Entrepreneur Social Club here at modernized historic venue NOVA 535, I spent time with WIFT. WIFT who? Women In Film and Television. WIFT. WIFT Florida, specifically, tonight. The lovely ladies were here to schmooze, laugh and connect. To network and expand their contacts, and to enjoy time with fellow filmmakers, producers, directors, actors, cast and crew. Feature films and docs, web series and TV commercials, shorts and indie scripts, there was a bit of it all. The common thread here was the love of film. Everyone in attendance, no matter what set, or direction they’re coming from, are ALL film LOVERS. And some are lucky enough to do it for a living.

Opening Night Party for the Tenth Annual Sunscreen Film Festival

Thursday April 30, 2015 the Opening Night Party for the Tenth Annual Sunscreen Film Festival SSFF was held here at the historic venue NOVA 535 Unique Event Space located in beautiful downtown St. Pete, Florida. We can all thank visionary Tony Armer for making this all happen. A man’s dream, lots of hard work, and the help of many many of us along the way, has propelled Tony from a film lover to the current role of Film Commissioner for Pinellas County and proud papa of a successful 10 Year Old Film Festival. Go Tony!! 2015 04-30 Sunscreen-Film-Festival-at-venue-NOVA535-downtown-StPete-74
