MUFFTix: Strange Weather at TIFF!
Oh hey there, TIFF friends. Want to squeeze in one last screening tomorrow morning? Of course you do! We have a pair of tickets to giveaway to a screening of Katherine Dieckmann's Strange Weather tomorrow morning, Sunday September 18, at 9:30am. Last minute? YES! But totally worth it.
Women and Hollywood interviewed Dieckmann about her film and of it she said:
I wanted to explore the complicated path of an unconventional female protagonist in a way that felt real to me in terms of the women I actually know in my life — women I rarely if ever get to see represented on the big screen. They have reached a certain age but remain unresolved, alive, contradictory, compelling, and not prone to stereotyping.
She also had some amazing advice for women filmmakers:
I think the best thing is to be fearless, stubborn, and kind — even if you’re faced with unkindness. Rise above it. Do and be better, because the world is less forgiving of women: that’s just a stone cold fact. Surround yourself with people who understand what you are up to completely independent of your gender, because if they’re the right people, that will be the last thing they’ll focus on.
Okay, so that's all kinds of inspiring. Now you're really hyped for the screening, right? Right! Enter the giveaway below. But hurry; we're drawing a winner at 2PM! And you can check out the rest of the interview here.
