Nominated "Best Actress" at Brightside Tavern Film Festival and more

Getting to create films with people I admire is a dream come true. And when those films are nominated for awards, well that's just icing on the cake! I'm so grateful to Brightside Tavern Film Festival for nominating by newest film, "The Question," (Directed by Larry Rosen) for awards in three categories. Those nominations are "Best Actress," "Best Short Short," and "Best Short New Jersey Drama."

In addition to nominations for "The Question," we've also received nominations for our sci-fi "33 Years" (Directed by Ryan Reid). Those nominations are "Best Supporting Actress" (myself) and "Best Concept." How awesome!!

The Question is a short romantic drama which stars Larry Rosen, Bethany Nicole Taylor, and myself. We made it in less than 70 hours for a filmmaking challenge hosted by SetNYC. The film premiered last month alongside other great shorts including Freedom (starring Rebecca Benzell, Johnny Wu, Victor Costa. Directed by Savion Smith & Rebecca Benzell), Ms. Kiss (Starring Ayesha Adamo, Matthew Wilson. Directed by Nick Sakai), and more.

Both "The Question" and "33 Years" will screen Sunday, July 30th at Brightside Tavern in Jersey City. Each film plays in the 1:25-3:08pm block (The Question plays downstairs, 33 Years plays upstairs).
