The feedback I received on my screenplay was extremely helpful and supportive. My placement in the contest allowed my first scene to by read by professional actors and it was a thrill to hear my characters come to life. This festival more than met my expectations in regards to my submission and follow through on their part. Thank you!!!!

Director Statement

As a filmmaker I’m fascinated by the spaces in between dreams and waking and how this can become a place to tell stories and experience ideas in a way that can that can plumb the depths of a viewer’s psyche. We all dream and inhabit the world of surrealism and symbolism nightly. I want to translate this experience through evocatively visual storytelling, exploring tales that are at once universal and at the same time, strangely unique.

Director Biography – Rosita Lama Muvdi (TABULA RASA)

1ba2bd0ccd headshot

Rosita is a Colombian directress who believes we all have a monster lurking deep inside us and, every now and then, an uncontrollable hunger forces us to surrender to the darkness and allow our inner monster to come out and play. The darkness in female sexuality, the perversion in the mundane, and viscerally penetrating emotional imagery are themes that are ever-present in Rosita’s work.

After pursuing her B.S. in Film and Television at Boston University, where her film SOMBRA AZUL won first place at the Redstone Film Festival, Rosita directed commercial and documentary work, which screened in Colombian theatres, and has had her fashion photography work featured in major publications like Vogue Mexico, among others. After directing CREEP DATE, a finalist at Miami International Film Festival’s REEL Music Video Art Competition, Rosita moved to Los Angeles to pursue her M.F.A. in Directing at AFI, where she wrote and directed her thesis film LA SIRENA (Grand Jury Winner at Dances with Films) , a psychosexual fairy tale about a woman who surrenders to her inner monster to avenge her broken heart.

 

Director Statement

 

Growing up is never easy. And as hard as we try to keep some of that childish innocence alive, we know eventually we have to let it go. Whether we want to or not, consciously or not, one thing is true: it comes at a price. There is something we inevitably, and sometimes painfully sacrifice as we come of age and become suddenly aware of everything we were too happy to remain oblivious to. And no matter how hard we try to resist that darkness, we know we have to feed our innocence to it. We have to grow up. Even if it hurts.
