Something unique about #risingabovefest is that we have a #womenover40 category that recognizes & gives discounts to #indiefilmmakers & actresses over 40 rather than students. It takes a lot for a person to keep going & creating art when they're older & we want to recognize them for their hard work! Congratulations Francesca! You did a terrific job!
