Gutsy Gals Make Films And Walk The Red Carpet

Lisa Green reports from Great Barrington. A red carpet event in our region? It’s happening frequently these days, and on Saturday, March 21, the carpet and backdrop were staged for the first-ever Gutsy Gals Inspire Me Film Awards at Bard College at Simon’s Rock. Presented in conjunction with the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers, the award honors women writers and directors of films, with the grand prize going to “Muffin Top: A Love Story,” a romantic comedy written and directed by Cathryn Michon, who plays the lead role of a woman learning to “love the skin you’re in.” The Berkshires’ own Karen Allen, Gutsy Gals founder Deborah Hutchison and its COO Christina Holbrook announced the 11 winners of the films, several of whom were in attendance. Following the screening, Cathryn Michon answered questions from the audience. “I just want to be a voice of encouragement to women making films,” she said. Above, Michon and Hutchison.
