NASHVILLE FILM FESTIVAL WAS AMAZING!!

The Nashville Film Festival was AMAZING! Our 5-year-old executive producer, Bela, joined me, as did Sugar Momma Donors, David and Rajita, Big Daddy Donor and Associate Producer, Sireesha, and Fat Lil Mama Donor, Lauren. It was SO wonderful to get to enjoy this festival with all of them! When we first arrived, we were so excited to see that NEIGHBORS was screening at the REGAL CINEMA!! Our poster was in a giant light box and it was so wonderful to be able to watch our film with an audience of people eating popcorn and lounging in stadium seating! NEIGHBORS opened for a really wonderful feature, SASSY PANTS, whose writer/director Coley Sohn was also in attendance.

The reception to NEIGHBORS was really wonderful. There was a trans man in the audience who told me that the film was incredibly special to him and that meant so much to me. And so many people came up to shake Bela’s hand and to tell her that she was a wonderful producer (which she is :)) Strangers approached us for days after our film screened to tell us how much they loved it and others asked how they could see it because they had heard so many wonderful things about it 🙂

The films at the festival were AMAZING. Artistic Director, Brian Owens, did such an amazing job of programming. I saw so many wonderful films and was truly honored to be among them. One of the best parts of the festival was how diverse the programming was — from documentaries to features to experimental films to shorts — the subject matter and genre of films was incredibly vast. We had a fabulous time and also had a chance to explore Nashville! It’s such a cool city and we were so happy to be there!

Capital City Film Festival was AWESOME!

Capital City Film Festival was an awesome festival. I met a lot of incredible people and we had a fantastic reception to our film. Capital City really celebrates women filmmakers and NEIGHBORS was part of an entire block of films from the Directing Workshop for Women! Go CCFF for promoting so many women filmmakers!!

The festival itself was amazing with films from Sundance and Tribeca and culminated in a performance by LIGHTS to a sold out house that was AWESOME! It was a true honor to be a part of it!! Here are some great articles written about Neighbors from the fest:

THERE IS FILM IN LANSING AND SOME OF IT IS DIRECTED BY WOMEN

A PERFECT WEEKEND AT CCFF

The DGA Screening

The DGA screening was a huge success! We had a sold out audience of 600 people! There was a great audience response and Hellin Kay of Champagne and Heels wrote a wonderful review of our film. Here’s an excerpt:

“Neighbors” directed by Rachel Goldberg, really blew me away, not only with the story line, art direction and pacing but also the cast which included Twilight alum Edi Gatheig in a surprising role along with Kelli Garner who plays the lead, “Maggie”.

Read the rest.

Here are some pictures from the evening:
