The Tallahassee Film Festival took place recently with 70 films across five screens and over 80 attending filmmakers and industry talent. During this event, groundbreaking films are showcased in celebration of the arts and cinema. MFA student, Lorraine Sovern, won best short film at the film festival with her film Forward Fast.  

Film synopsis: “While embarking upon a process of archival and preservation, a filmmaker dives into a stark exploration of self as she discovers the seeds of patriarchy and misogyny already planted and steeping the imagery of her childhood films.”
