2009 Woman’s Angle shorts

Who will be the next Penny Marshall – director of hits like Big, Awakening and A League of Their Own? As Atlanta’s film community continues to blossom, The Woman’s Angle is helping women climb into the director’s chair.  Here’s a chance to say you knew them when.
On Friday, March 20 at 7:30 pm, six locally produced short films will have their Atlanta premiere at The Plaza Theater – 1049 Ponce De Leon Avenue – all directed by women.
The program repeats on Sunday, March 22 at 2:00 pm. “We kept seeing women interested in directing their own film, then fade away, “explains Tracy Martin, volunteer executive director, co-founder of The Woman’s Angle, and a film director herself.  The Woman’s Angle aims to mentor women by encouraging their directing talent, and guiding them at every critical stage of their film’s development to take it to the finish line.
The 2009 Woman’s Angle shorts are:
A Peacock Feathered Blue by Jenna Milly
Playgirl by Melanie Mascioli
Wheels by Tracy Martin
Love Happens by Dellis Caden Noble
Flights of Angels by Kimberly Jurgen
Happy Hour by Angela Barnes Gomes

Tickets for the 90 minute screening are $10 and include a party with the director after the show. Advance reservations are strongly recommended. 

The event is made possible through generous donations from sponsors and partners including the Fulton County Arts Council, Women in Film and Television, Atlanta Film Festival, Oz Publications, YourACT and  Film Finish – a new feature post facility in West Atlanta
