THE RAIN COLLECTOR is coming back to New York! ATHENA FILM FESTIVAL 2017 by Isabella Wing-Davey

Very excited that we will be having two more New York screenings of The Rain Collector, at the amazing Athena Film Festival.

Now in its seventh year, the Athena Film Festival — a celebration of women and leadership — is an engaging weekend of feature films, documentaries and shorts that highlight women’s leadership in real life and the fictional world.  The four-day festival, which includes conversations with directors and talent and workshops for filmmakers, has quickly established itself as one of the most prestigious festivals of its kind.

The festival will be held Feb. 9 – 12, 2017 on the upper west side.

Screenings of The Rain Collector will be on Saturday Feb 11th @ 3pm and Sunday Feb 12th @ 1.30pm. More info and tickets. Bella Wing-Davey (writer/director) will be doing Q&As after each screening.
