Exciting news!

So I did promise a big announcement re: BLOODY BREASTS. Well, here it is!

I'll be presenting my first panel during the opening weekend of the Fantasia Film Festival. What makes is even more rad is the awesome line-up of guests who kindly agreed to join me in a discussion about women horror filmmakers and the overall state of the genre when it comes to gender. And just to make things sweeter, it happens to be on the same day as the Viscera Film Festival, in L.A.!

Here's the link to the panel's page on the Fantasia website, and my co-panelists are:

Jovanka Vuckovic - former editor in chief of Rue Morgue Magazine, author of Zombies! An Illustrated History of the Undead, director of THE CAPTURED BIRD

Izabel Grondin - director of ASPIRALUX and FANTASME


Kier-La Janisse - author House of Psychotic Women, co-founder of Blue Sunshine Psychotronic Film Center

It's this coming Sunday, July 17th at 3PM at Reggie's (inside the Hall building of Concordia University) and it's FREE!

See you there!

Many thanks to the wonderful Char Hardin!

I first spoke to Char when she invited me to participate to Horrorphilia's first Girl's Night Out podcast with the Soska twins and Hannah Neurotica. Let me tell you I was immediately charmed by this incredibly kind, fun, and hilarious woman! In just a few minutes, she managed to put me at ease and I almost forgot we were recording a podcast! It was so fun, just like talking with a bunch of girl friends!

This week, she was kind enough to review three of my shorts and it is with great pleasure that I'm sharing these great reviews with you:




...and to make everything even sweeter, we'll be recording episode three of Girl's Night Out podcast this Saturday! Stay tuned as I'll let you know when the episode is online.

In the meantime, check out episode 2!

It's positive press week + other fun stuff!

I just had my first mention in the Montreal Mirror, our local arts & culture free newspaper, thanks to Florence T. and everyone at the Mascara and Popcorn Festival!  The article written by the great Kier-La Janisse features the upcoming festival and namedrop yours truly.

You can check it out HERE or pick up a free copy if you're in Montreal! :D

Also, John Ginder posted a great writeup about BLOODY BREASTS on the Horrorphilia website.

In other news, my short film REFLECTION is currently streaming (for free!) on BlackFlag.tv  Simply follow the link and look for FRANKENSTEIN UNLIMITED in the schedule. My short is the 4th in the anthology!

Last but not least, I'll have REALLY exciting news about BLOODY BREASTS to share soon. Alas, I have to keep my lips shut until Thursday, so stay tuned and check out episode 4, which will be release on July 5th.

And don't forget to come say 'hi' to me at the Mascara and Popcorn screening on Wednesday night! :D
