Heather Brawley and fiancée, Kirstie Muñoz have two short films in the New Hope Film Festival - one in the 2020 screenings, and one in 2021 screenings - and are traveling from California to attend the event.
“Our two films have racked up a cumulative 16 festival selections in the past year,” said Brawley via email.
Comedy “Feminist Theory and How it Relates to the Patriarchal Dividend” was filmed pre-pandemic and was directed by Katie Oliver. It was nominated in the Female Eye Filmmaking and LGBTQ Spirit categories of the 2020 festival.
