THE SERIES

‘How to Hack Birth Control’ is a comedy digital series on how to navigate and take charge in today’s contraception universe. Told through the sharp wit and perky charm of the narrator Ruth, Birth Control takes a run at a hit list of ‘not supposed to talk about,’ scenarios. How do you get the morning after pill quickly and for free? Where can you hide your birth control? How do you get your doctor to listen to you? All of the things women want to know but are taught to be too afraid to ask.  Filled with backpack cats, patriotic American eagles, musical numbers and the game show, ‘Let’s Not Make a Baby,’  each memorable contraceptive milestone is a riotous new discovery. Authentically raw and LOL fun, ‘How to Hack Birth Control,’ will make you wonder what else sex-ed never told you.

The San Pedro International Film Festival was founded to celebrate the diverse culture and community of San Pedro with a wide spectrum of independent films, documentaries, and shorts.

 

SPIFF is committed to exhibiting films that embody inspiring entertainment for all. Works that express fresh voices and differing global perspectives, with the intent that these films enlighten audiences while providing invaluable exposure for filmmakers, local and international.

The Worldwide Women's Film Festival educates, supports, and empowers filmmakers in the collaborative endeavor of filmmaking while we shine a light on stories by women, and other diverse experiences across all genders.

Qualified films must be quality, completed films AND have at least one woman in a key creative behind-the-scenes role (e.g. Writer, Producer, Director, Cinematographer, Editor, Composer or other significant behind-the-scenes role).

Founded in 2009, by a black female filmmaker that initially wanted to create a space for like-minded creatives to screen their projects and network, the DMViFF soon evolved into the DMV International Film Festival.

 

DMVIFF's mission is to sustainably develop, unite, discover and enrich the cinema
talents in and of the DC, MD, VA, and Internationally. In addition, DMVIFF includes 
the entire community area offering residents unique participation for inclusiveness.

DMVIFF is dedicated to unifying the talents, communities, emerging opportunities, and resources of motion picture creatives in or of the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and Foreign Filmmakers.
