Who runs the world??! GIRLS!

presented by Alissa Santiago

Alissa sits down with Jessica Greco; writer, executive producer and actor in the short film Jessica Jessica. The story of two friends in their late 30’s who aren’t married, aren’t mothers, aren’t failures, and are both named Jessica. Winner of the Best Screen Play in the Vancouver Short Film Festival 2018. And an official selection in the Kingston Canadian Film Festival,  the Lakeshorts International Film Festival and the Toronto Short Film Festival in 2018.

We recorded on a Friday night and Pacific Junction Hotel Bar was busy and packed with bearded men wearing baseball hats who gathered in gaggles. . We talk about the importance of representation of the female voice in film both on camera and behind the scenes. The lead actors, writers, producers and editor were all women on Jessica Jessica. There was some serious lady bossing happening on this project.

You can check out Jessica Jessica in the Toronto Short Film Festival this week at the Carlton Theatre and the Lakeshorts International Film Festival. Tickets go on sale for Lakeshorts on March 23.
