#DirectedByWomen FILM SUBMISSION: ‘Love, New York’ by Dionna McMillian

Our ‘Women Film-Makers’ segment wants to try to showcase the work of budding women directors. This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be making films as a profession, or submitting them to festivals, you can submit something you made for a school project, or just lil experimental stuff you’ve shot by yourself or with friends. All we need is a bit of writing about yourself and the film, and a working YouTube/Vimeo link. Click here for more details on how to submit.

A struggling  New York actress grabs the wrong cup of coffee on her way to an important audition. Leaving her to fight a lot more than just nerves.

Dionna McMillian is a director and writer. She loves all genres of film-making but has found her voice in more comedic material, but also loves a good drama. She is currently working on an episodic series that I’ll soon be seeking funding and also has a feature in the works. Her inspirations are wide ranging, among them Issa Rae, Tina Fey and Paul Fieg. As well as Tarantino, Christopher Nolan and his brother Johnathan Nolan, Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze to name a few. Also, her family and friends inspires her constantly.
