My Citizen Jane Film Festival Day 1 Re-Cap

October 31st, 2017 Comments off

I worked as a volunteer social media reporter for the Citizen Jane Film Festival last weekend and here is a clip and link to my Day 1 re-Cap posted on their blog. — Douglas

I must admit I am a little bleary-eyed as I type, but it is all because my day at the Citizen Jane Film Festival was full to the brim with great people, great experiences, and great information. While films are certainly the focus of Citizen Jane, the CJ Film School day was all about learning.Screen Grab: From Screenplay To Big Screen, Who Will Win?

The morning started with “Screen Grab,” during which 5 screenwriting finalists were selected to give their pitches for 5-minute films to a panel of filmmaking experts, including Sarah Haas, Steph Scupham, Kimberly Skyrme and Ken LaZebnik, Director of the Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting program which operates out of Los Angeles. The winner of Screen Grab will have their film produced, receive a $250 award, and also receive a table read by the local Greenhouse Theatre Project on the last day of the Festival.

Bold Brash Words From Bold Brash Screenwriters

The final session of CJ Film School had Dr. Rosanne Welch, Professor of Screenwriting History for the Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting, host 6 of her current and former students as they presented short profiles of various female screenwriters. Too often the history and careers of screenwriters, especially women, are lost in the passage of time. As part of class, each student selects a woman screenwriter and develops a paper and presentation highlighting their career. This is the second year MFA students have participated at Citizen Jane.

No. 9 Soft Ginger Cookies | Welch’s 24th Annual Christmas Cookie Party


These quickly became one of my favorites when I discovered them last year sometime. They were a great hit at the party, as well. They are very full of ginger flavor, without being too spicy or too hot. Almost a perfect combination of ginger and sweetness and the lovely soft center makes it nearly perfect.

Event: A Bintel Brief – A New Musical by Ken LaZebnik and Leslie Steinweiss – Sunday, July 10, 2016 @ 3 pm

Event: A Bintel Brief - A New Musical by Ken LaZebnik

Continuing his post-high school theater work, our son, Joseph Welch, will be appearing in this staged reading of our friend’s latest play, The Bintel Brief.

“100 years ago, Jewish immigrants to America sent letters to The Daily Forward’s column “A Bintel Brief)” (a bundle of letters), seeking advice about everything from labor disputes to romantic troubles. The editor, Abraham Cahan, responded as a kind of a Yiddish Dear Abby, offering advice and reassurance. The letters in “A Bintel Brief” remain a vivid and moving document of what it means to be newly arrived in America.

The new musical A Bintel Brief dramatizes those letters and the immigrant experience, which is universal and unchanging. Our cast represents the diversity of the immigrant experience: the letters may have been written in Yiddish, but the joys and sorrows are the same in any language.”
