A very sweet piece of news with a bitter taste at the end: The Brussels Independent Film Festival has selected The Wedding Cake for the 2021 festival, but due to the Belgian COVID-19 situation and government regulations, the festival team has decided to postpone the 2021 edition by a year, making the 2022 a double edition with double screenings!
In the meanwhile, however, an international jury will rate this year’s official selection and winners will be announced on 12 February. So fingers crossed!
New selection for The Wedding Cake! The festival dates are still not clear, as the pandemic still makes it wholly uncertain, but sooner or later the Ibiza Cinefest will take place and I am very proud and happy to be participating to a such a high-profile festival!
I am going to complete my animated documentary about prostitution and pornography “Silent Flesh” (of which The Wedding Cake is a pilot) by June this year, and I am looking for creative women and girls (or collectives of women and girls!) from all over the world to join me.
If you are a female creator in any field (from painting to knitting, from dancing to composing, from acting to textile dyeing) and you believe female bodies shall not be sold for sex, please get in touch with me.
This project does not have a rich budget but there will be a small monetary compensation for the participants. Artists will maintain the ownership of the copyright of their artworks, they will only permit me to use it in the film.
To learn more about the project please download the PDF!
Please contact me at mollybloomprod [ at ] gmail.com and to present your work, by January 31st, 2021, thank you!
“The Wedding Cake” did not make it to compete in the most important shortfilm festival in the world, unfortunately, BUT it was picked among the over 8,000 submitted shorts to be present in the exciting 36th edition of the “Short Film Market Picks”. It is a platform where the festival organizers present cherry-picked material for worldwide buyers.
Timely for the yearly statistics I am glad to report that my article for Femminist Current was the fourth most shared this year, with 2,1k shares! Thank you all for sharing – and reading it! – this 2020 has been a very good year for our fight against pornography!
