Short Film, “Mothers, Purpose + The Future” Makes Waves on U.S. Festival Circuit
Carving a coast-to-coast path from the Hamptons to Huntington Beach, the powerful short film “Mothers, Purpose + The Future” will bring its message of empowerment and sustainability to several forthcoming film festivals this fall. Sponsored by the pioneering apparel brand Carve Designs, the docu-style film spotlights women – surfers, adventurers, environmentalists – exploring beaches, mountains, parks, and raising their children.
This summer, “Mothers, Purpose + The Future” already earned audience acclaim at the Montauk Film Festival in July and as an official selection at the Surf City Festival in August, where it was crowned second runner-up for Best Short Film. It concurrently screened on HBTV3 during the annual Vans US Open of Surfing.
Continuing on the fall festival circuit, the film will screen at the following:
Surfalorus Film Festival (Nags Head, NC) – Screening on Wednesday, September 21
Equinox Mountain Film Festival (Manchester, VT) – Screening and filmmaker Q&A TBD during the festival, which runs from September 23-25
Imagine This Women’s Film Festival (New York, NY) – Screening TBD during the festival, which runs from September 23-October 2
The first salvo in its sustainability initiative, Women x Good, “Mothers, Purpose + The Future” is produced by Carve Designs in partnership with award-winning cinematographer and documentary filmmaker Hannah Walsh. The film showcases the stories of four women living harmoniously with nature and sharing their passion with the next generation: Cameron Lee Barnum (Jacksonville, Florida), Danielle Black Lyons (San Diego, California), Camille Cunningham (Sayulita, Mexico) and Nellie Pickett (Bozeman, Montana). The film can also be seen on Carve Designs’ website and social sites including Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
