    "Fraser Syndrome and Me"

    Award-winning short film chat

    with director Kyle Anne Grendys

    Wednesday April 7, 2021

    6:00pm - 8:00pm

    Kyle Anne is a passionate, witty, and intelligent young filmmaker. She also happens to have an ultra-rare disorder known as Fraser's Syndrome. It is so rare, in fact, she had to travel the world to find others like her. This short documentary screened in February 2021 at the Love Your Shorts film festival in Sanford, Florida, and Mo Johanson, our co-host tonight, knew we had to have Kyle Anne join us for a panel detailing her filmmaking journey. A link to the trailer is listed below, and the link to the full film is available if you DM the @WIFTDaytona page directly with express instructions NOT to share this film as it is still in competition around the globe. Such a special guest with an amazing story to tell. Join us! If you still haven't joined WIFT yet, please consider doing so at womeninfilmfl.org
