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.”

Oh, the weather outside is frightful. And for most of us, that means battening down the hatches, pouring a glass of wine and figuring out what shows to binge-watch. But for this week’s Portrait, Steve Sosna, inclement weather means he’s donning an extra layer and running into the heart of whatever Mother Nature has to offer. As an NBC10 weatherman, this is the kind of stuff he’s prepared for. He also happens to be married to last week’s Portrait, Jonathan D. Lovitz.

Jonathan D. Lovitz has an impressive résumé. He is a senior vice president at NGLCC, the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce, and a regular commentator on MSNBC, CNBC, NPR, The Advocate, Out Magazine. He has spoken at or fundraised for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, The Trevor Project, GLSEN and the Democratic Party. He is also a respected openly gay actor and news anchor for Logo TV and other networks.

“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”
