Mile High Nancy Episode 3 | www.confessionsofamiddleagedwomangonewild.wordpress.com

Q: How do you feel about being selected to participate in Colorado Independent Women of Film?
NF: I feel honored to be part of this event. I am excited to share my work with the community.

Q: What are your hopes for the event?
NF: I hope we can learn from each other such as techniques, ideas to get locations, and creative sharing.

Q: How important is it to focus on regional women filmmakers?
NF: I think it is important to have a forum for women so we can collaborate and gain insight on the female perspective.

Q: Who would enjoy attending the festival? Is it just for the filmmaking community, or is there a reason why non-filmmakers should attend?
NF: Anyone who loves local films and creative content should attend.

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?
NF: I’ve enjoyed going to all the screenings and I have been to several. I have to say I love hearing the crowd laugh when one of my videos is shown.

Q: Tell me briefly about yourself and your film/project.
NF: I am a local writer, producer and director who created a web series called Mile High Nancy. This is the third episode in the series and it shows the character of Nancy performing stand up and meeting Black Dick, a rapper/emcee.

Q: Tell us one unique thing about you and/or your movies?
NF: I focus on middle aged women a lot and love to incorporate the cannabis culture in my work. I have had a few women around the US contact me to thank me for publishing the series because they are moms who use cannabis for pain and illness. They have told me it makes them feel better to see a woman they can relate to.

Q: What else are you working on?
NF: I just finished filming episode 4 and I am working with an animator on a comedy short called Dicks Anonymous.

Q: Where can people go to find out more about you and your work?
NF: They can go to my YouTube channel Mile High Nancy and my blog www.confessionsofamiddleagedwomangonewild.wordpress.com

Q: Is there anything else you’d like to say about Colorado Independent Women of Film?
NF: Thank you for this opportunity.

Mile High Nancy Episode 3 will screen Friday, February 10th at 8:00 p.m. at The Bug Theatre.
