RIFC-project Film, "Green Grass", has been Accepted and will Screen this coming Weekend at the Flint Film Festival in Flint, Michigan

- http://www.theflintfilmfestival.com/

The festival is committed to exhibiting films that express fresh voices and differing perspectives, with the expectation that these films will enlighten audiences, provide important exposure for filmmakers and exhibit inspired entertainment for all. Green Grass, a short narrative film about illegal immigration, was co-produced by Karen Webb, Dawn Morrissey, and Anthony Ambrosino. If you happen to be in Flint, Michigan this weekend, check it out!

The producers of Green Grass have also been notified that the film has been selected by the Filmmaker’s Collaborative in Boston for their Film Talks presentation series, http://filmmakerscollab.org/programs/film-talks/ Film Talks brings award-winning filmmakers and their films to diverse venues throughout Greater Boston, to screen their work and lead discussions about the issues and ideas represented in their films and their filmmaking choices. The goal of the program is to use the power of film to stimulate dialogue about issues and the process of filmmaking itself. Film Talks venues include main and branch libraries, homeless shelters, senior centers, detention centers, community centers, teen health centers, art centers, Boys & Girls Clubs, and YMCAs -- underserved audiences that might not otherwise have the opportunity to see high quality films and to speak directly with accomplished filmmakers about their work and the issues about which they are passionate and knowledgeable.

RIFC Member Karen Webb has won the 2008 Manhattan Short Film Festival Screenwriting Competition - http://www.msfilmfest.com/ - for her short screenplay “Arthur’s Salvation.” The largest film festival in the world, the Manhattan Short Film Festival screens its finalists’ films over 220 times in 99 cities, 19 countries, across three continents including 32 US states. In addition, Karen’s feature-length romantic drama “Christmas Cake” has also been named as one of three finalists in the New Hampshire Film Festival Screenwriting Competition - http://www.nhfilmfestival.com/ . Winners for the NHFF will be announced this coming weekend in Portsmouth, NH.

Thank you,

Karen Webb & Dawn Morrissey
