Cookies & Cream at the Sexy International Film Festival - Sat Nov. 22 - NYC
Until I got the invite from the people who made the new feature Cookies & Cream, I never know there was a fest called the Sexy International Film Festival. So I am going - really, how can you turn down an invitation to an event called Cookies & Cream at the Sexy Int'l Film Fest :) More info. below, come check out the fest this coming weekend:
First, Sexy IFF (I almost typed SIFF - but didn't want people to confuse this fest w/ Seattle Int'l) on Facebook. The fest happens on 11/21 Fri (shorts), & 11/22 Sat (Cookies & Cream - feature).
Sexy International Film Festival Time and Place Start Time: Friday, November 21, 2008 at 7:00pm End Time: Saturday, November 22, 2008 at 9:00pm Location: Helen Mills Theatre Street: 137-139 West 26th Street City/Town: New York, NY
"Cookies & Cream is a character piece that centers on Carmen (Jace Nicole), a racially mixed single mother, who maintains an adult entertainment job in order to take care of her daughter and herself. Carmen longs for the same loving relationship that her roommate Jodie (Naama Kates), who has the same job, shares with her steady boyfriend. She sets out on a short series of relationships, including a musician (Ardie Fuqua) and a teacher (Brian Ackley), while seeking a man who isn’t aware of what she does for a living, in hopes that someone will eventually love her for who she is, and not for what she does for a living. This tastefully told tale of new age dating and unbreakable career ambition, is told through the eyes of an independent woman trying to find the strength to continue on through the toughest of circumstances."
