Come for brunch and discussion with Susan diRende, author/artist/filmmaker and Founder of the Broad Humor Film Festival on Sunday, September 4, 2016 at 11:30 AM in Venice. She will share her experience of turning her script into a novella that found a publisher and is now a book in its own right.

She will widen the discussion to what women can do to resist the sense of failure that the structural inequities of Hollywood cause in us. After 15 years in the LA entertainment community, the respect and welcome she encountered in the print community, especially its receptivity to the work of women. Susan will make a case for adding “/author” to your self-description and broadening your idea of how to get your stories out there.

This event is open to the public. Tickets $12

Broad Humor Film Festival, Electric Lodge Performing Arts Center, Venice, CA
