LIGHT THE GIRL PRODUCTIONS
Light The Girl Productions (LTG) was formed in 2016 by three professional Canadian actresses motivated to change the narrative for women in front of and behind the camera. With the interest of creating female-driven content, Dharini Woollcombe, Carin Moffat and Linda A. Palmieri began work on their first project, a documentary called In Her Own Skin. This documentary aims to explore subtle and overt racism through one woman’s goal to end her own cycle of racism and search for acceptance of her own skin colour. While in post-production for the sizzle reel of In Her Own Skin, Dharini, Carin and Linda submitted a script to the ACTRA-CINEFAM’s Toronto Women of Colour Creator’s Short Film Challenge and won. See Me Now, a five minute short, tells the story of a woman lost in the drudgery of her daily life, and how she reawakens to her long forgotten self.
See Me Now premiered September 7th, 2016 at the opening gala of the Caribbean Tales Film Festival and won The Africa Channel Cinema Spotlight Award. See Me Now also screened as an official selection in The Toronto Black Film Festival on February 19th, 2017.
Most recently, Dharini, Carin and Linda received semi-finalist selection for a script they wrote titled The Boot in the 2017 Stage 32 Short Script Competition. They are thrilled to receive attention for their focus on diverse female-based content and look forward to their time on the festival circuit with See Me Now.
