The WiM produced CAMERAderie Initiative film, Smashed screened at the Burbank International Film Festival on September 10, 2022. Women in Media hosted the Smashed Reception immediately following the screening. The filmmakers, friends, VIP’s, and family showed up fierce and fabulous for the black carpet. We enjoyed lunch, a special toast, and two panels that featured key above and below the line filmmakers.

We celebrated director Dawn Spinella, Producers Bex Francis, Leah Latham, Samantha K. Henderson as well as their proudly inclusive crew!
About The CAMERAderie Initiative
Smashed was made as part of the CAMERAderie Initiative, which encompassed the production (each film is a 3-day shoot), post production, delivery & a VIP Black Carpet Screening & Award Ceremony of the greenlit CAMERAderie films. Many department heads had mentors and received prizes to enhance their kits and other professional goals. The filmmakers have all signed the Parity In Action pledge, and their shoots have all female department heads plus 70% + women crews.
We are very excited to have shot this high production value short with major support from MBS group, Hackman Capital, and our vendor partners.
