It’s time for The Women’s Film Festival, with its screen offerings and festive events, including a burlesque performance, dancers from Indonesia, moving films, funny films, documentaries … and they’re not finished yet.
The evening of March 23 brings two films on sex, “The Foursome” and “Bookends,” and several shorts that cover the #MeToo movement, among other topics. On March 25, “The Feels,” starring Constance Wu from “Fresh Off the Boat” alongside a cast of female comedians, will be screened as a joint collaboration with the qFLIX Festival, along with a powerful film on domestic violence called “Blindsided.”
This week, we get to know filmmaker Caryn K. Hayes, originally from New Orleans. Hayes has a passion for storytelling, with fiction published in the New Voices Literary Journal. In 2007, she began producing new media content for Showbiz Shorts and BrevityTV.com, ultimately taking on directing responsibilities at the latter and getting appointed head of production. In 2009, Hayes launched Hardly Working Entertainment to produce her first short film, and got into online content with the popular, award-winning relationship dramedy “Entangled With You.”
