"ARMS AND THE WOMAN: The March 4-5 Vancouver Women In Film Festival kicked off with a meetand-greeter at Davie Street's Moxie's Classic Grill Thursday. Much was made of director-producer Katrin Bowen, whose Hollywood-actress teen years resurfaced in her well received debut feature film, Amazon Falls".
See Amazon Falls on Sunday March 6th
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm | FEATURE FILM & CLOSING AWARDS | Amazon Falls (Canada, 2010), directed by Katrin Bowen
"One to watch may be writer-director-producer Beth Freeman, whose Sisters In Arms depicts three female combat soldiers' experiences in Afghanistan and straightforwardly examines collateral family pain experienced in Canada. Already screened at CFB Esquimalt and scheduled for March (International Women's Day) at the Royal Military College in Kingston, this balanced movie may have the range and impact of ordnance it shows in action.
As for one-person duels, actor-producer Meeshelle Neal's Therapy sees her play herself and an alter ego in a locked-door treatment that, rather like independent moviemaking, can result only in a successful outcome or death".
See Sisters In Arms on Sundays March 6th
6:00 pm - 7:30 pm | FEATURE FILMS | A Window Looking In (BC, 2010), directed by Tara Hungerford; Sisters in Arms (BC, 2010), directed by Beth Freeman
