Introducing Leah's Indie Film Series @ Soundstage 909!

 909 Islington Street, Suite 1, Portsmouth, NH

Leah's Indie Film Series is a new monthly film series I've created in conjunction with my media partner WSCA Portsmouth Community Radio. My goal is to bring both short and feature length indie films to an audience that may not otherwise see them, while helping get the word out about up and coming filmmakers, and their projects from around the world, on a monthly basis. If you have a film you wish to submit to Leah's Indie Film Series, please click here.

The next Series will be held Thursday May 18 at 7 pm. Admission is $5 and concessions will be available for purchase. 

For May's edition I will be partnering with Bluestocking Film Series to showcase films with strong female protagonists that have passed the Bechdel-Wallace Test.
