Women Direct Newsletter: Emmy Recap, New Project, Awards and More!

Cady McClain's documentary "Seeing is Believing: Women Direct" won the Audience Award for Best Feature at the SOHO International Film Festival in New York City. The short version won a Jury Award in the Best Documentary category at the Newport Beach Film Festival.

The following statement was provided by the Emmy-winning actress. 

Hi friends!

Where has the time gone? It's already May and so much has happened since sending out the last #WomenDirect Newsletter.

First, yes, that is the amazing Kimberly Pierce, who directed the film "Boys Don't Cry" (among others). It was my honor and privilege to interview her for our doc Seeing is Believing: Women Direct.

Okay now on to the silly stuff.

We had an awesome time at the Daytime Emmy Awards celebrating my nomination for Outstanding Directing of a Digital Series! Woot! While we didn't take home the statue, we ran into some old friends, met some new friends - and best of all - had some great laughs!

Now that the Emmy's are over, I've headed to the East Coast to attend several film festivals, one being the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival. That's where our film “Butterflies” won Best Short Film AND Best Actress in a Short Film! WOW! We couldn't be more excited! Congrats to the talented Carlotta Summers who wrote, starred in, and produced "Butterflies" with me... and to all our amazing cast and crew!!
