The Shoe is Making Waves

Hello all! 

Quite a busy time around here as we’re entering early stages of production for But I’m a Shoe.

Meanwhile, I was informed by the Austin Film Festival that Shoe was a 2nd rounder. Which means top 20% out of over 10K submissions. Hooray!

This morning I was also notified that Shoe is a finalist at the Rhode Island International Flickers’ Film Festival Screenplay Competition. Both these festivals are Academy Award qualifying festivals. So… yay!

Exciting casting news are coming very very soon. And when I say exciting, I mean VERY exciting. 

I’ve also  recently (finally!) launched an Instagram account for Grace Dragon Productions (which is a name I’ve been using and putting in credits for over a decade.) Feel free to follow here

Upcoming dates:

10/14-16: SENE FILM FESTIVAL – Cranston, RI – But I’m a Shoe is nominated for Best Screenplay.

11/5: ANN KATZ JEWISH BOOKS & ARTS FESTIVAL  – Indianapolis, Indiana – a special evening with The Book of Ruth. Click here for tickets.

Shana Tovah to one and all!

Best Supporting Actress Nomination at LadyFilmmakers

category: Ruth's

Thank you so much to the LadyFilmmakers Film Festival for this Best Supporting Actress in a Short nomination!

I’m truly honored to be considered!

We will be screening The Book of Ruth there THIS Sunday, 9/25, at 7.15 PM. There are still some tickets left for our block (18) so come one come all!

More awards! More Festivals!

Hello everyone,

Busy months ahead! 

I’m happy to report that The Book of Ruth has three (that I currently know of!) upcoming screenings between now and the end of the year! 

Every time I think the circuit is over for this one, there are some surprises! Thank you all for being with us for what looks like a 2.5 years in the festival circuit.

There are plans for the day after, and I’ll share in due time 🙂 I hope to be able to bring the film to as many of you as possible.

But before I talk about the upcoming screenings, I’m also happy to report I’ll be heading back to Cranston, RI in October for the wonderful Sene Film Festival, as But I’m a Shoe is nominated for Best Screenplay. A true honor. I’m moved by all the love that has already been shown to this script about a girl who turns herself into a shoe!

As for The Book of Ruth, first, you’ll be able to catch the film at the South Dakota Film Festival on 9/17. We were already informed that the film won Best Narrative Short and I’m beyond grateful! Sadly I won’t be able to attend the festival, but it looks like a wonderful program!

Next stop is Beverley Hills for the LadyFilmmaker Film Festival! The film will screen on 9/25 and I’ll do my very best to be there!

And then on 11/5 I will be in Indianapolis for the Ann Katz Festival of Books & Arts. A whole evening dedicated to The Book of Ruth with 30-40 minutes Q&A to follow. I expect a lively conversation with Michael Abrams about representation, storytelling, and so much more!

If you’re in either of these events, come and say hi! All details about tickets and show times can be found here.

As always – more soon!


But I’m a Shoe

Hello friends,

It’s been a minute.

Partially because a lot of the work is being done behind the scenes.

But The Book of Ruth won Best Short Dramedy at the wonderful Sedona International Film Festivaland we have a few more festivals before we conclude a terrific, award winning festival run for which I’m incredibly grateful.

But I’m also hard at work on two new projects that I’m very excited about, one of the two is But I’m a Shoe, a short script for a would-be animated short.

Very very happy to say that the script got accepted into the screenplay competition at one of my favorite film festivals – Deep in the Heart, in Waco, TX, where The Book of Ruth won Best Family Short last year.

I’m thrilled to head back to DITHFF to share this script with an audience for the first time, by way of a live reading. Details to follow, but what a great place to “premiere” it! 

Stay tuned!


New Year, New Festivals

Happy New Year everyone!

You’ll be able to catch The Book of Ruth multiple times this year, both online and in-person!

And we’re not done yet!
