Meet the Filmmaker: Catrin Blythe, “Pin the Tail on the Donkey”

Catrin_Blythe_HeadshotQ: How do you feel about being selected to participate in Colorado Independent Women of Film?
CB: I feel honored and thrilled to be able to show my film in this festival.

Q: What are your hopes for the event?
CB: To show my hard work to other women independent filmmakers, gain confidence, and see other films.

Q: How important is it to focus on regional women filmmakers?
CB: I think that women don’t get much recognition for the films that they make. With the event women filmmakers can present films and meet other women filmmakers.

Q: Who would enjoy attending the festival? Is it just for the filmmaking community, or is there a reason why non-filmmakers should attend?
CB: I think everyone should come because they can see entertaining films and support the local women filmmakers.

Q: This is the 6th year of CIWF. What’s been the best part/a favorite memory of the festival in years past?
CB: My favorite memory was last year’s film festival. It was my first film festival and I enjoyed meeting other filmmakers and presenting my own. It gave me confidence and pride to be there.

Q: We hold CIWF at The Bug Theatre. Why is The Bug a great home for this event?
CB: I think it’s a good place to host the event because it’s a theater and it gives the film festival a sort of style, like a movie theater.

Q: Tell me briefly about yourself and your film/project.
CB: I live in Austin, Texas and I’m fifteen years old. The film I made is about a friend who makes a childish party for her best friend.

Q: Is there anything you’d like to say about Colorado Independent Women of Film?
CB: I think this is a great event for any female film maker to present your films and a great place for anyone to come see some local films.

Pin the Tail on the Donkey will screen Saturday, June 4th at 8:00 p.m. at The Bug Theatre.
