About The Casting Couch
In 2004, the Casting Couch was introduced as a live Sunday night event that showcased national and international talent. Although the show was geared toward individuals established in the performing arts community, Casting Couch encouraged anyone from SoFlo who so desired to perform; spoken word, reading scripts, and excerpts from books or narrations – nothing was out of bounds. In its infancy the Casting Couch was set in a live talk show atmosphere minus the cameras. After several months the Casting Couch concept was shelved.
In 2012 the idea of the Casting Couch was revisited with vigor. Slightly tweaked The Casting Couch TV Show focused primarily on entertainment industry as it pertains to SoFlo. Shot in beautiful Miami, this show is designed to give hidden talent in South Florida exposure. Although, the main premise is focused on entertainment the show will discuss social issues that affect our society. What makes the Casting Couch unique is that this show is totally interactive and social media driven.

“We are delighted to open our festival with Mrs. Pinkett Smith and such a strong film,” said Yvonne McCormack-Lyons, WIFF Founder and President. “Mrs. Pinkett Smith is a fabulous representation of our festival’s mission, and the film reflects a period in the life of one of America’s Civil Rights female icons, Angela Davis. The event epitomizes what the festival is about: showcasing and empowering women’s dreams, visions, and voices,” McCormack-Lyons
The WIFF Opening Night screening of “Free Angela” in the Knight Concert Hall of the Adrienne Arsht Center will be a rare treat for Florida audiences. It will be only its second public screening in the United States. It is the only opportunity Florida audiences can see the film in theater. The film will be playing in seven other select cities nationwide. The evening is co-hosted by Miami-Dade Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan, District One. Proceeds from the event will benefit WIFF’s “Reel Girls: Real Women” media literacy and film making program for at-risk girls.

In addition to the screenings, WIFF also offers film lovers five days of events including workshops, panel discussions, symposia and parties held during the festival. “We selected films and events which capture all aspects of women’s lives whether it be sexuality, politics, spirituality, love, culture, identity and beauty,” said McCormack-Lyons.
About the Film
Free Angela and All Political Prisoners is a film by Shola Lynch, presented by Realside Productions and De Films en Aiguille, in association with Direct Cinema and the participation of Direct 8, with major support from La Region Ile-de-France, Canal Plus, the Ford Foundation and Black Entertainment Television Networks. Produced by Carole Lambert, Shola Lynch, Carine Ruszniewski, Sidra Smith. Directed and written by Shola Lynch. Executive Producers Overbrook Entertainment and Roc Nation.
Hailed by the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival as “a fascinating chronicle of justice and strength,” Free Angela tells the dramatic story of how a young professor’s social justice activism implicates her in a botched kidnapping attempt that ends with a bloody shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list.
In this historical vérité style documentary, marking the 40th anniversary of her acquittal on charges of murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy, Angela Davis recounts the politics ad actions that branded her a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide movement for her freedom as a political prisoner. At its core, the storywrestles with the meaning of political freedom in a democracy negotiated between the people and its government. Strong, attractive, and engaging, Angela Davis is one such person who became a symbol at the center of this still relevant power struggle.
