In honor of International Women's Day, The Midwest Independent Film Festival is proud to host a special one on one discussion with Filmmaker Jennifer Reeder!
Jennifer Reeder constructs personal fiction films about relationships, trauma and coping. Her award-winning narratives are innovative and borrow from a range of forms including after school specials, amateur music videos and magical realism. These films have shown consistently around the world, including the Sundance Film Festival, The Berlin Film Festival, The Rotterdam Film Festival, The London Film Festival, SXSW, The Venice Biennale and The Whitney Biennial. Her awards include several that have qualified her films for Oscar nomination. The Midwest Independent Film Fest has screened four of her films, which have been nominated for awards 3 times. Her feature “Signature Move” won for Best Director and Best DP at the 2017 Best of the Midwest Awards.
Jennifer Reeder will be interviewed by Melissa Thornley, tonight’s Emcee.
