Another media release for Women Filmmakers

HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. and PARK CITY, UTAH – January 16, 2009 – Two spunky non-profits are determined to create more opportunities for women in film and they will be spotlighting the success of women filmmakers during the Sundance and Slamdance Festivals. On Sunday, January 18, The Fund for Women Artists and the Alliance of Women Directors(AWD) will host “A Celebration of Women Filmmakers,” where they will salute the women filmmakers at Sundance and Slamdance.

The statistics on women in the film industry are daunting. Dr. Martha Lauzen of San Diego State University reports that only six percent of the top 250 films of 2007 were directed by women and more than 20 percent had no women at all in the key creative roles of director, writer, cinematographer, editor, producer or executive producer.

To beat these tough odds, The Fund for Women Artists and the Alliance of Women Directors recognize that successful female role models and new alliances of filmmakers and audience members are essential.

The Fund for Women Artists will invite film industry members to join their colleagues around the world for the second international Support Women Artists Now Day (SWAN Day) on March 28, 2009. SWAN Day is a celebration of women artists in all disciplines, held annually on the last Saturday of March as the grand finale of Women’s History Month. The goal of SWAN Day is to honor the full diversity, beauty and power of women’s creativity.

The Fund for Women Artists is a non-profit organization that provides women artists with the resources they need through free online funding, networking, advocacy information, and by building alliances of women artists and supporters. The Fund for Women Artists’ website serves more than 500,000 visitors a year.

The Alliance of Women Directors is a coalition of working women film directors. AWD provides peer support, and furthers the art, craft and visibility of women directors through seminars, screenings, networking dinners and mentorship program.

“A Celebration of Women Filmmakers” will be held on Sunday, January 18 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Queer Lounge, 608 Main Street, Park City, Utah.

Thanks to: Queer Lounge and ABSOLUT ® VODKA.

Here is our latest release!

Maisha Gainer Shines on NBC’s “Momma’s Boys”

Premiere, Tuesday, December 16 at 10PM ET/PT

Following its December 16 debut, Momma’s Boys will begin airing in its regular Mondays at 9PM ET/PT time slot on December 22.

Los Angeles, CA (December 15th, 2008) Aspiring actress/TV talk show host & model, Maisha Gainer is smashingly on her way. Tackling a coveted spot on NBC’s latest Reality TV sensation, “Mommas Boys,” produced by the inimitable Ryan Seacrest, Maisha is poised for greatness.

Premiering on NBC December 16 2008, the show centers around a group of seriously circumspect mothers set to choose the ideal woman for their complacent & complicated sons. The show plays poignantly yet playfully upon the nature of relationships and the nurturing aspects of family-namely MOM!

Also executive produced by Andrew Glassman (Average Joe) and co-executive produced by Eliot Goldberg and Grant Julian, Momma’s Boys is already showing significant promise for next season. For Maisha Gainer, getting into momma’s house is a step closer to getting momma’s boy, and with Maisha’s beauty, talents and charm, chances are Gainer’s got it!

Her unforgettable face has been forged into recent memory from featured spots on Inside Edition, and her striking beauty celebrated as winner of the prestigious Esprit Clothing modeling competition. Holding a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, as well as a flourishing career in law enforcement, she seems to create the world in which she chooses to live-and right now it’s on NBC!

Watch Maisha as she baffles the Momma’s Boys bachelors with her presence, sincerity, and unforgettable attitude. Endearing MOM comes as natural to Maisha as embracing her BOY, and with three boys to choose from, Maisha’s got it going on!

Here is a new media release about a fantastic Plastic Surgery medical and spa facility.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA (December 2, 2008) Luxurious doesn’t even begin to convey the chic modernity, architectural brilliance and sophisticated vibe of the new Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc. medical and spa facility. Beauty begins with beauty, and in this environment, one is constantly reminded and perpetually surrounded by an aesthetic of the highest order. And it is indeed remarkable that in Beverly Hills, the epicenter of plastic surgery, classic beauty is again revered and wonderfully re-established as the modern standard by BHPS.

And it is also no mistake that Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc. (BHPS), a full-service plastic and cosmetic surgery practice, is led by the surgical skill of the preeminent plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Gabriel Chiu. It is after all, his vision, precision, and dedication to symmetry and proportion, that has single-handedly raised the beautification bar, as a slew of satisfied clients attest.

(Thankfully), Dr. Chiu’s commitment to classic beauty has re-populated Beverly Hills with more natural-looking women, turning the trend against that wind-tunnel-swept look, gushes Karen S., a devoted client of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery, Inc. (see for more information).

Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc. generously offers up their luxurious spa office, complete with the most modern technologies available, a sensational Skinceuticals retail lounge, a VIP retreat for the most discerning clientele, as well as a personable staff of profoundly knowledgeable consultants, nurses, and medical aestheticians. One feels most at home, or at the very least, relaxed in this Vogue-like resort, this Chanel-inspired suite. Soothing Parisian tunes play while patients sip on decadent refreshments: this is clearly a place to rejuvenate, replenish, and transform.

BHPS suggests that it is their understood ideal of enhancing beauty by utilizing the most natural, minimally-invasive, and painless techniques available, as well as customizing the treatment in its entirety to serve the specific needs of their patients. And to manage this while creating a chic and exciting ambiance is truly a medical/social breakthrough!

Located ultra-conveniently at 9454 Wilshire Blvd, (facing So. Beverly Drive) on the ground floor, what has in the past been considered a clinical, impersonal and even cold experience, now has the spirit of that which its critical work is intended; to change peoples lives, to re-create youth, and ultimately to enhance beauty.

Surgeon expertise and integrity, patient safety and confidentiality, the finest supplies and instruments, and advanced, proven technologies and techniques, all come conveniently together in what has to be considered as one of the premier plastic surgery establishments and experiences worldwide. But it is the overriding goal of BHPS that sets it apart altogether-their care for the patient and dedication to a classic beauty!
