It was a dark and stormy night…actually, it was quite pleasant and clear outside…but inside the Bus Stop Theatre, the temperature dropped as chills and thrills oozed off the screen and into the hearts and minds of the 60 plus audience at the Ladies of the Fright AFCOOP fundraiser.
A co-presentation of AFCOOP and The Visera Organization (with promotional support from WIFT-AT), it was a celebration of female filmmakers working in Horror/Sci-fi/Fantasy. Curated by AFCOOP from films made available through the Visera Organization, this bold collection of works ran the gamut from funny (Sheeties), to creepy cute (Nursery Crimes), to down right disturbing (The Third Eye). A definite highlight of the evening was the premier of the Film 5 short Nigredo by director Kristen Swinkles. Claustrophobic and unsettling, Nigredo was a perfect start to the evening and great example of the fine work done through the FILM 5 program.
Women in Film and Television - Atlantic was thrilled to support AFCOOP with this event, and are pleased to congratulate Lauren Oostveen on winning the draw for a one year WIFT-AT membership!
