Gia Milani Script a Winner at Slamdance

Congrats to Gia Milani for her script, All the Wrong Reasons, winning the Script Accessible Award as part of the 2009 Slamdance Feature Screenplay competition. The awards are in January at Slamdance, so if you're in Park City, get in touch and say hello.

Gia's short film, Bathroom Stalled, was in the very first Broad Humor festival and her short, She Lost Her Marbles, was in the very first alumnae invitational the next year. For more info on her films go to her company website, Shore Road Pictures.

Julia Camara Invitational Reviewed

Julia Camara's Invitational Short has been reviewed here. I started the no-fee invitationals as a way to encourage all our Broads to keep producing new work and develop their craft with a guarantee that the finished film would get at least one festival screening. That many of the films have gone on to have a life after Broad Humor is a testament to the idea that women can do comedy. All we need is a little encouragement.

For info on this year's invitational, check out our home page: broadhumor.com. Remember, any festival participant from any past year can submit a film for no fee and be guaranteed a screening in next year's fest.
