JWAM selection of SOAPIFF International Fest and Silent River Film Festival

JWAM has been chosen to be screened at 2 more festivals!

The Silent River Film Festival takes place in Irvine, CA (not far from Hollywood) and will be held October 11-14th. Info on screening times TBA

Silent River Film Festival dedicated to the independent filmmakers of the world has been established with a vision to bring East and West together to share their best work of  films and Cinema and Causes on one platform to raise awareness about the issues that are important to us. It also aims to create more opportunities for the Female Filmmakers and supports  Student Filmmakers by discovering and recognizing them.

Secondly, the Southern Appalachian International Film Festival takes place in Kingsport, TN and will be held November 12-18th. Info on screening times TBA as well

 The purpose of SOAPIFF is to publicly recognize, promote and preserve the work of independent filmmakers and encourage film production and film culture in Southern Appalachia. SOAPIFF revives an annual film festival in the greater Tri-Cities, Tennessee, the birthplace of the oldest continuous independent film festival in the American South (the Sinking Creek Film Celebration). SOAPIFF will entertain, educate and also present speakers, seminars and other art forms that play collaborative roles in film production and promotion. To that end, the Organizers aim to provide Festival entrants with an opportunity to showcase their movies to as wide an audience as possible with the premiere of their entries, if selected, at SOAPIFF in multiple theatres, and, when possible, via distribution of entry materials for promotional purposes separate from, and/or before, during and/or following the Festival.
