On June 12th, Nia Malika Dixon, who is working on her Certificate in Feature Film Writing, was honored at the 2009 Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards for her participation in the WIF Mentor Program with Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke.
“My experience with the Women In Film Mentor Program has changed my life. The opportunity to work with Catherine has allowed me to see that my goal to create films is not simply a dream. She has offered me her invaluable professional advice and guidance, and has shared her kindness and friendship. Since working with her I’ve completed scripts for which I’m proud, and received industry recognition, and I’ve begun shooting a documentary about my endeavor into the world of filmmaking.”
Congratulations Nia, and keep us posted as your career evolves!
