The Les Femmes award recognizes "an outstanding woman in genre filmmaking," and during the awards, Nathan Ludwig noted that its recipient was chosen for her work in the community, directing, producing, cinematography, and more! (Sophia does it all!) Quite a cool honor.
Sophia and I also had the honor of receiving the Nuclear Pen Award for having multiple screenplays place as finalists in the screenplay competition!
