Join creative duo Amanda Bruton & Steven Michael Mooney, and their producing partner FACES (Female Artistic Commercial & Entrepreneur Support, Inc.), for the NYC premiere of their award-winning short comedy, Nevertheless, She Auditioned.

Stick around after the screening for a standup comedy set, courtesy of Anna Suzuki. Besides her hilarious turn as NSA’s dejected heroine, she has recently appeared in Second Act with Jennifer Lopez, Spike Lee’s Netflix TV series She’s Gotta Have It, and HBO’s High Maintenance.

And what’s a night of comedy without an insightful reality check? To round out the evening, a diverse panel of fierce women, including Amanda Bruton (Actor & Filmmaker), Erica Jensen (Casting Director & Co-Founder of She-Collective) and Sheri Sanders (Actor & Creator of Rock the Audition), will take a deeper dive into the real-world challenges that served as inspiration for the film.

Moderated by Brittany Rostron (FACES Founder & Executive Director), the interactive Q&A will cultivate an honest discussion about the various obstacles still facing women, especially women of color, when it comes to both casting and auditioning within the confines of an often unyielding and antiquated industry.

It promises to be an evening filled with laughter and empowerment, mixed with a tinge of frustration and anger… a truly perfect third act for this year’s Women’s History Month.

The event will take place ahead of NSA’s official online release on Friday, March 29th in anticipation of the 12th Annual International SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now).
