Local award-winning and recently optioned writer, actor, and producer Catherine Fridey received a scholarship to help with post-production on her and fellow producer, and director Catharine Pilafas’ World War Two short film “Seagull.” The crew was mostly female, and the cast is entirely made up of women, and includes both Catherine, Catharine, and fellow NMWIF member Kathryn Phipps. It recently screened at the Albuquerque Film and Music Experience, and has been submitted to several film festivals both in North America and Europe.
