Can short format films be the start of something bigger and better? Or are they an often under-appreciated art form in their own right? Three women filmmakers will present their award-winning, innovative shorts and discuss what inspired them and how this format can lead to other projects of varying lengths and topics.
At The Line directed by Sari Gagnon — A lesbian couple struggle over whether to stay in the closet or come out and jeopardize their careers in college basketball. This short is part of a feature length play of the same title, written by Lynne S. Brandon, produced by Rita Pirozkhov and created in collaboration with the Women Only Project. http://gagnonsari.wix.com/sarigagnon
