Introduce Yourself : Creating a MOVEMENT, not just a film. by Cali Gilbert

Creating a MOVEMENT, not just a film.

Greetings Stage32 Family!

I'm Cali from L.A. Author turned FILMMAKER. After publishing several bestselling books, I turned to film in 2014 as I wanted to continue to grow as an artist. Screenwriting was NOT my friend when I first started out and I ditched the first script I attempted to write. However, I completed my first feature length script in April and loved every moment of the process.

In January I launched my own production company, TOWER 15 PRODUCTIONS and currently working on a few projects. One in particular is entitled PEARL which celebrates six extraordinary women who have overcome homelessness to find success in the Arts. (I'm one of them as I experienced a year of homelessness in San Francisco before arriving in L.A. at the end of 2013).

In the film we plan to not only share these incredible stories, but also ways in which we are working towards ENDING homelessness once and for all. We are looking to create a MOVEMENT and would love for all of you to join us.

I'm also in the midst of publishing a new FILM series of books geared towards supporting the aspiring and emerging female filmmaker. The first book, IT'S SIMPLY FILMMAKING came out last year and the second, IT'S SIMPLY SCREENWRITING will debut in January, 2020.

I'm a speaker at several publishing conferences and also the Track Coordinator for the Writing for Hollywood Summit at the 2020 San Francisco Writers Conference. If you are in the SF Bay Area, would love for you to join us in February.

Grateful to Richard "RB" Botto and my Stage32 Family for their guidance and support and happy to support YOU any way I can.

UPDATE (July, 2021) After two years of working on this film, I've decided to take the story in a different direction. I'm so passionate about supporting women in transition, those who are creative and…

Looks like you have your hands full. But maybe you'd keep my Next Step for Democracy 'movement' in mind as you meet others. Kudos to your efforts!

Interesting background. I, too, am an author turned screenwriter. I'd like to read even more about your projects.
