Blue Roses Film And Theatre Festival to be Presented By Face To Face

The First Annual "Blue Roses" Film & Theatre Festival (Festival Director: Anthony M. Laura and Festival Coordinator: Jose Duran) has been announced. Anthony Laura and the company of Face to Face Films, enjoying great success with their virtual reading series, Theatre Interrupted, now expand their reach with a new film festival.

The First Annual "Blue Roses" Film & Theatre Festival was created to showcase works about women promoting themes of inclusivity, diversity, and community through responsible storytelling.

The Festival goal is to highlight films and plays that encapsulate the women who we don't often see on screen but admire in life.

Recent Academy Award-winner, Frances McDormand, once said "Female characters in literature are full, they're messy, they've got runny noses and burp and belch. Unfortunately, in film, female characters don't often have that kind of richness." "Those are the types of women we want to showcase, ones who are empowered, independent, raw and 100% themselves," says festival director Anthony Laura.
