Devi Snively - Writer/Director
Congratulations to Devi for her selection to the AFI Fox Filmmakers Lab Initiative!
A partnership between AFI and 20th Century Fox, the Lab aims to increase the number of women directing major studio films — which was even lower last year than it was in 2015 — by giving them the chance to direct short films based on Fox titles: “Alien,” “Die Hard,” “The Omen,” “The Fly,” etc.
Julia Camara - Writer/Director
Congratulations to Julia for receiving the Best Screenplay Award from the Idyllwild International Festival of Film for her film "Occupants". She and the director, Russ Emanuel, also received the Excellence in Filming Award.
