An evening of feminine power!
Film screening of “Amplify Her’, followed by an afterparty with music by cozy and Lady K. Bring your dancing shoes!
Co-presented by CVW & Mt. Eliah Presents
AMPLIFY HER is premiering at The Waverley Hotel on April 6. Imagined and brought to life by more than 21 female creators across North America – the film, graphic novel and motion comic series follows seven up-and-coming stars as they find their unique voices within a male-dominated realm. On the surface, it’s a story about women in the electronic music industry, but the film’s deeper message is the resurgence of “the feminine” in Western culture.
Shot at over 13 festivals, including Burning Man, Shambhala, and Envision, the film weaves comic animations, live action, and candid scenes shot with the characters over 4 years into this unique music documentary.
Starring LUX MODERNA APPLECAT and BLONDTRON. Featuring WALA, A Hundred Drums / Nya Beats, Kytami, CloZee, ALIA, Dubvirus and Ill-gates
Produced in partnership with CMF and the Bell Fund
Directed by IAN MACKENZIE & NICOLE SOROCHAN
Produced by NICOLE SOROCHAN & ERIN SKILLEN
