SAFILM - San Antonio Film Festival honored legendary actress Cybill Shepherd with the FIRST EVER Marcia Nasatir Award at the 25th Anniversary celebration in August. Anne Goursaud, Director of A CLASSY BROAD, presented Cybill with the award as Marcia who was unable to travel to San Antonio for the 2019 event. Cybill was thrilled to receive the honor as referred to Marcia as a legendary pioneer who paved the way for women.
This past Sunday, Marcia hosted a SA/LA Soiree for Executive Director and Founder of the San Antonio Film Festival, Adam Rocha, along with his A-list team - his wife Susan and best friend Martin - during their trip to Los Angeles. Adam was in town scouting for studio films, independent features, panelists and experts to attend the 23rd annual film festival in San Antonio.
Last year, A Classy Broad was an official selection of the San Antonio Film Festival, and Rocha awarded Nasatir with a Lifetime Achievement Award, being a native San Antonian and glass ceiling breaker.
We were thrilled to return the favor and introduce Adam to notable Hollywood movers and shakers to attract more attention to South Texas' LARGEST Film Festival.
This year's festival will be held August 1-6th and word on the street is that there will be a new award given out to an outstanding female filmmaker who strives to break glass ceilings. That award will be The Mogulette - The Marcia Nasatir Award.
The San Antonio Film Festival presented Marcia Nasatir with a Lifetime Achievement Award on July 31st during their brunch ceremony at O'liva Restaurant. While this meant the world to Marcia, being a native of San Antonio, Executive Director Adam Rocha revealed his petition to The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences to honor our CLASSY BROAD with a very special honorary award (a.k.a OSCAR)!! Please join us and SIGN THE PETITION HERE!
After receiving the award, A CLASSY BROAD screened as an official selection of the San Antonio Film Festival in the Alvarez Studio at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
Once again, the CLASSY BROAD team was overwhelmed by the generosity and support from our friends in San Antonio. We'd love to especially thank Adam & Susan from the SA Film Festival, Dana Ward from the Thomas Jefferson High School Historical Preservation Society, and Anna Catalani & Wes Hughes for making sure we had transportation in San Antonio --- we are truly grateful for your continued friendship!
A CLASSY BROAD: Marcia's Adventures in Hollywood, RETURNS to San Antonio as an official selection of the San Antonio Film Festival for the closing night screening on Sunday, July 31, 2016 at 4pm in Alvarez Studio at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.
