WIFVNE congratulates all of the participants of the New Haven 48 Hour Film Project (HFP). The shooting weekend was July 28-30th, and the screening event tool place on August 5 at the Bijou Theatre.
WIFVNE is a proud sponsor of the New Haven 48HFP. The winner of the Woman of the 48 Award, sponsored by WIFVNE, receives $100 from WIFVNE and a one-year WIFVNE Individual membership. The Woman of the 48 Award is intended to recognize a behind-the-scenes female/female-identifying member of the crew, whether Super Hero on Set, serving in multiple roles, or shining in her position for the team.
The winner of the 2023 Woman of the 48 Award is Mary Spaulding from team Wandering Karma for "A Fine Bromance." Her team writes: “Throughout our 48Hrs Mary Spaulding was a picture of calm and laughter. She remained steadfastly buoyant and focused on solutions rather than what was going pear shaped. She never complained or faltered, wearing several hats, scripty, assistant editor, co-writer. (We) heard her bursts of laughter watching the actors rehearse the brand new script she and (team member) Amanda Cabral delivered in less than an hour and that reminded everyone of why we love to do this. When the film was finally in the can, she rushed it over to the editor and worked with him to deliver it on time. She did all the graphics that ended up in the film and supervised the assembly. Because of her unwavering light, incredible versatility, high morale and professionalism Wandering Karma nominates Mary Spaulding for the WIFVNE Award."
