Upcoming: Fem does Nashville Film Festival #NashFilm18

Those who miss us, rejoice! Although the podcast is on hiatus, Fem is happy to announce hir most recent adventure – being a screenwriting juror for the Nashville Film Festival! Ze is very honored and will be hanging out and watching movies at the fest May 10-19. Expect tweets and a roundup of films while ze’s out of stasis.

Some random 2018 updates:

  • You might remember that ze was really angry about the direction and happenings in Twin Peaks: The Return. Ze’s happy to report that after a recent rewatch, ze is cool with it. Ze is also cool with the way X-Files, Season 12 ended.
  • What else has ze been watching? Lots of TV mysteries like Dark and The Frozen Dead and even superhero stuff like Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok. Ze also discovered the highly entertaining web series, Queer Ghost Hunters, and was pleasantly surprised by how much she liked Kristen Stewart in Personal Shopper. Ze recently watched It Comes at Night and the Grace Jones documentary, Bloodlight and Bami, and thought they were both fantastic. Ze is currently enjoying Netflix’s Lost in Space and Aggretsuko.
  • Speaking of cartoon animals, Ze experienced the magic of Night in the Woods, a horror video game exactly hir style and pace. Ze loved it so much that it encouraged hir to try and play other story based games on Steam, but ze’s pretty much video game illiterate and the attempt was short lived.
  • As a fan of Jurassic Park and dinosaurs ze is super duper looking forward to the release of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom next month, followed by the new release of what’s shaping up to be a franchise ze really digs, The First Purge. Ze is also hoping to finally get to see They Say I’m Different – the Betty Davis documentary ze kickstarted way back in 2015.
