Posted on December 20, 2014 in News
hello

I’m very pleased to announce that on Dec. 14, 2014, The Green Girl was awarded the Jury Prize for Best Documentary Feature at the 14th annual Valley Film Festival in North Hollywood, CA.

And on top of that, on December 6, 2014, the film resulted two more awards, this time from the Women’s International Film & Television Showcase (WIFTS).  The first was a Posthumous Lifetime Achievement award for Susan Oliver, who was in great company along with other Hollywood legends honored that day, including Tippi Hedren.  We were lucky enough to get Susan’s niece to attend the awards luncheon and accept the honor on Susan’s behalf.

Needless to say, December’s been a great month for the film – especially since it signifies some level of achieving the mission I originally had with making The Green Girl – to FINALLY get Susan Oliver some of the recognition she so clearly deserved (and was largely denied during her own lifetime).

Whatever else does or doesn’t happen, Susan’s story is finally part of the “permanent record,” and now it will be there for anyone who wants to see it (hopefully, you’ll include yourself on that list!).

Happy Holidays, everyone!
