Wavelength to Premiere Three Films at DOC NYC
Let Me Be Me will make its World Premiere at the festival while Krimes and Cusp make their NYC Premiere.
We are very pleased to announce the inaugural recipient of our WAVE Grant, Eliana Pipes! The WAVE Grant is a $5,000 seed grant awarded to a first-time female or non-binary filmmaker of color to help them finish their short film, and we couldn’t be happier to have Eliana be our first recipient.
Eliana’s animated short ¡Nails! follows Catalina, a wide-eyed 15-year-old Latina taking dance classes to prepare for her Quinceañera. When Catalina develops an unexpected crush on a girl in her class, her fingernails suddenly begin to grow at a superhuman pace – a blessing for a Latina, but a curse for a lesbian.
Stay tuned for more updates on ¡Nails!
