Welcome to the 10th Vancouver International Women in Film Festival Web Series Lounge.
Enjoy the creations of BC women:
In this puppet-based soap opera parody, Gene, a hard-working pair of jeans, must weave around the power-obsessed manipulations of his dress pants boss Mr. Hemmington. The arrival of women’s pants in the closet offers Gene a chance at passion, but with one wrong step, it also threatens betrayal that could leave his reputation in tatters.
Comedy with a Purpose — Certifiably Organic is a fresh new web-series that follows a 40-something do-it-all mom as she trips and topples in an effort to make the planet, and her kitchen, a better place. Her biggest problem? Convincing friends and neighbours that Halloween is a national tragedy and that raw quinoa-crust pizza tastes better than deep-dish. Her second biggest problem? Being the change she wishes to see, as she burns through a bag of chocolate chips, binge-watching Real Housewives.
True to her creed—stand for something, fall for nothing—this girl stands, falls and gets up again. Whether on a soap-box at a girls’ lunch, chasing down an eco-offender outside Starbucks, or diving into her next nutrition venture—it’s mostly sideways for the well-intentioned mother of two exuberant boys. Full of hilarity and hypocrisy, this web-series catches the plight of today’s modern mom, where all signs lead to keeping up with the Joneses, versus saving the planet. With her loyal, celiac (GF before it was cool!) husband there to keep her in check, and a cast of friends, frenemies and co-venture types, this makes for one juicy and relevant series.
