A Local Film Lover Tells You WHY BendFilm

"F

ilm has the ability to impact my mood, reflect my interests, challenge me, expand my horizons and experience ideas and places I might not otherwise get to. It's as diverse as I am!

"I love that with film I can learn through documentaries, be absorbed into science fiction, feel the ups and downs of a romance, cheer for the underdog in a drama, laugh out loud with a comedy, get an adrenaline rush in an action-adventure, travel to times and places both real and imagined, and find inspiration in ALL genres. That's awesome!

One of my favorite BendFilm inspirations was the movie, "Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines. It was at BendFilm when I was still in public office. Celebrating various ways people, and particularly women, show up in the world is incredibly important to me. We are multi-faceted individuals. To quote Diane von Furstenberg, I believe 'We all have a Wonder Woman inside us.'"

*This is one feature in a series of stories from filmmakers and film lovers about how storytelling enhances our lives. #ItsAllAboutTheStory #IndieFilm #BendFilm
