Oscar-Qualifying Film Festival to Screen Juliette Fairley's Diary of a Mulatto Bride, 5/30


The 2nd Annual New York International Short Film Festival (NY Shorts Fest) will be screening narrative fiction, documentary, and animated short films from May 28-30, 2013 at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York City.

Diary of a Mulatto Bride (8 minutes) is about adult bi-racial Coquette Alsten (played by Juliette Fairley) whose French groom Jean Claude (played by Alexander Blaise) keeps a secret that her co-workers accidentally uncover. The film will screen at 9:45pm on Thursday May 30. Tickets can be purchased at

"All of my short films are segments extracted from a 90 page script called Mulatto Saga that I've been submitting to producers and directors so whatever attention the project gets at film festivals like NY Shorts takes me one step closer to the greater goal ofgetting the larger screenplay produced by a Hollywood studio for global release," said Fairley.

Created by the Oscar-qualifying Los Angeles International Short Film Festival (LA Shorts Fest), the NY Shorts Fest offers short-form filmmakers an ideal platform to screen their film and gain recognition in the heart of New York City.

"Based on last year's overwhelming positive feedback from filmmakers and attendees, we are very excited to present this year's line-up of films," said Executive Director Robert Arentz. "NY Shorts Fest will continue to evolve and build an identity unique as the city and people of New York City."

Fairley recently wrapped her 4th short called Juliette Fairley's Mulatto Diaries, which she has submitted to the Los Angeles Shorts Fest taking place this summer in North Hollywood.

"The premiere of Diary of a Mulatto Bride is a breakthrough for me and my film series because NY Shorts is prestigious," said Fairley. "To receive a nod from an oscar-qualifying film festival is a major victory."

More than 60 films from 11 countries will be participating in the International Competition. The complete line-up is posted on
