Please premiere "Waking Madison" at TIFF '08
We want more representation from female directors in the cinematic arts and strongly encourage the TIFF Festival Programmers to select Katherine Brooks to present "Waking Madison" this year. Katherine Brooks has a very loyal fan base that appreciates her artistry and commitment to creating independent films that promote female empowerment. Katherine\'s fan base greatly values her strength as a filmmaker and her previous work has been embraced by thousands of people, throughout the world, for whom she has given a voice. We are voicing our support for Katherine because she addresses topics that need international exposure and which many people have had to personally experience in silence. \"Waking Madison" is a film that explores the ebbs and flows of mental illness from a female perspective, a topic that desperately needs cultural exposure. Our signatures symbolize a united voice in support of Katherine Brooks dedication to female empowerment and representation in the cinematic arts.
