CATHY COPPOLA: Narrative Feature
Writer/Director/Producer/Star: Stefanie Sparks
Synopsis: Struggling NYC filmmaker Cathy Klinkman (Stefanie Sparks) has had enough of not being taken seriously by the misogynistic indie film world and decides to take matters into her own hands by pretending to be the illegitimate daughter of a famous film director.
Shot over the course of 9 days in August 2012, Stefanie received a Jerome Foundation grant to shoot her first feature for just under $24,000. CATHY screened at Female Eye Film Festival in 2013 and Brooklyn Girl Film Festival in 2014. It was nominated for the audience award at both festivals.
