Interview & Review by FF2 Media

A whopping thank you to FF2 Media & The Hot Pink Pen for publishing an interview with me as well as a positive review of The Red Card!

FF2 called me their "Filmmaker to Watch," and in the interview, Jessica Perry and I discuss The Red Card, my inspiration as an artist, and what it's like being a young women in the film industry. 

Be sure to check out The Red Card review, too.  "With a compelling performance from Amber Collins-Ives as Sam, and a subtle yet strong social statement from Brawer, The Red Card deserves all the recognition it is earning on the festival circuit. Dana Brawer is definitely a filmmaker to watch, and I can’t wait to see what she does next!"
