Meet the Filmmaker: Megan MacGrath, “Fifty Shades of Kilroy”

Fifty Shades of Kilroy |

Q: How do you feel about being selected to participate in Colorado Independent Women of Film?
MM: I am so honored and excited this film was selected to be a part of the festival.

Q: What are your hopes for the event?
MM: My hopes are for everyone to have fun and enjoy themselves.

Q: How important is it to focus on regional women filmmakers?
MM: I think it’s pretty important to focus on regional women filmmakers because often we can get overlooked.

Q: Who would enjoy attending the festival? Is it just for the filmmaking community, or is there a reason why non-filmmakers should attend?
MM: I think friends, cast, crew members who worked on the project, who may not have been able to see it and just anyone in general who wants to see the scope of what we, as women filmmakers, can do.

Q: This is the 7th year of CIWF. Do you have a favorite memory of the festival (or screening at The Bug Theatre) in years past?
MM: Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to attend the festival in the past, so I’m pretty excited for this opportunity this year.

Q: Tell me briefly about yourself and your film/project.
MM: I’ve been working in the film industry for over 10 years and have met amazing people along my journey. The project is a fun one that the writer couldn’t escape hearing about Fifty Shades of Grey and took a fun, little twist to it.

Q: Tell us one unique thing about you and/or your movies?
MM: I have held many different crew roles throughout my career and it’s fun to change up the genre and work on different projects and with different people. You never know where it might lead you or who you’ll meet.

Q: What else are you working on?
MM: I’m currently in pre-production for a sci-fi, fantasy film called Monster Force Zero. We start filming this month and have a few other projects lined up as well, like a Ghostbusters fan film.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
MM: IMDb – or even just find me on Facebook: Megan PM AD MacGrath – I post projects I’ve worked on, as well as new information.

Q: Is there anything else you’d like to say about Colorado Independent Women of Film?
MM: Looking forward to meeting new filmmakers and connecting with more women filmmakers.

Fifty Shades of Kilroy will screen Friday, February 10th at 8:00 p.m. at The Bug Theatre.
