Adios Summer 2015 and Hello Fall!

What an intense summer this was! So many wonderful things happened!

Our film, “Millie and the Lords”, continues to screen at various film festivals thruout the city. So far we have won Best Feature at not one, but two film festivals, and leading actress Jessica Carmona (my sis!) won Best Actress at one of them! We have so far screened at the Viva Latino Film Festival, Queens World Film Festival, The Peoples Film Festival, and the Harlem International Film Festival. Coming up this fall we will be screening at the San Juan International Film Festival, Oktober Film Festival, Georgia Latino, Reel Sisters Film Festival and so many more! Feeling great about all of the positive feedback on my first feature!

Also this summer I participated in my first NYC Fringe Festival. Had a blast working on a beautiful piece my sister wrote about immigration activist Elvira Arrellano. Our play made the Top 7 of the Fringe List and received great reviews!

Been interesting to say the least, this journey of balancing new motherhood with my life as an actress, but I’m somehow managing to do it! Benji is growing so fast- cant believe its already been 8 months!

Feeling thankful for all of my blessings and looking forward to all that the fall has to offer! Bring on the pumpkin spice lattes!!
