I was asked to be the moderator for the Variety Arabia Media Summit in April, in Dubai. Should be an interesting event, with lots of good speakers. Stop by!
I was a guest at the World Story Telling Day at the heritage Village in Abu Dhabi. Our children's novella, Antar and Haider the Lion, was one of the stories told to the kid's there. Dedra and I plan on doing these little story books until there is a collection for a hard cover book. It is available on Amazon Kindle.
I have been REALLY bad about not posting...but we have launched Women in Film and Television, UAE, www.wiftuae.com Since the launch in Oct. 2011, we had a short film contest, sent a delegate to the Berlin Film Festival, had two lectures and filmed a documentary at the Al Daferah Festival.
Last week we held a short film festival in honor of International Women's Day, called Women's Voices from the Muslim World. It was graciously supported by HH Sh. Sultan bin Zayed's Culture and Media Centre.
We did get a lot of local ladies and some very spirited discussions!
This was one of my favorite short films from the festival. Enjoy!
