Film Festival Scholarship Winners

On December 17th, Women In Cinema awarded three Film Festival Scholarships to three hard-working ladies at UT.  The jurors were incredibly impressed with their films and we can't wait to see the future work of these three directors.  Congrats Ladies!

Martha! - Directed by Haley Anderson
Synopsis: Martha, a shy Catholic schoolgirl, experiences an immaculate conception after listening to rock n roll.

Jenny and Steph - Directed by Elizabeth Chatelain
Synopsis: When Jenny’s older sister Steph decides to throw a party, Jenny witnesses first-hand what keeps the two girls at an ever increasing distance: Steph and her friends smoking meth.

Plateau - Director Catherine Licata
Synopsis: Melody deals with the aftermath of a breakup while celebrating her best friend’s upcoming wedding.
A big thank you to our two jurors Producer Megan Gilbride (Lovers of Hate, Where Soldiers Come
From, The Bounceback) and Director Elizabeth Mims (Only the Young). Each winner will receive waived submission fees to the following film festivals: Los Angeles Film Festival, Dallas International Film Festival, SXSW Film Festival, Aspen Shorts Fest, deadCenter Film Festival, Maryland Film Festival.
