SXSW will continue screening films through Saturday, when most of the festival’s audience awards recipients will be announced. The exception is for the headlining films, such as “A Quiet Place,” “Blockers,” and “Ready Player One” — those verdicts follows on March 19.
This year’s line-up comprised 256 total features and shorts, culled from 8,183 submissions. Best narrative feature “Thunder Road” was adapted from the namesake, one-take short that won a Grand Jury award at Sundance in 2016.
Lena Dunham’s “Tiny Furniture” (2010) and Destin Daniel Cretton’s “Short Term 12” (2013) are among the best-known past jury victors at SXSW. IndieWire’s Dana Harris helped choose the Louis Black “Lone Star” honoree,
The new media review service is “by and for women” and aims to offer an alternative to male-dominated criticism — “a system that more accurately represents the range of critical and audience opinion, along with high-quality content from both established and new critical female voices.” The review aggregate and rating service will use female critics exclusively.
CherryPicks is headed by producer and director Miranda Bailey (“You Can Choose Your Family”) and producer and Gurl.com co-founder Rebecca Odes (“This Is Me”).
But film producer/director Miranda Bailey (The Squid and the Whale, Diary of a Teenage Girl) insists the gender imbalance among U.S. film critics — the vast majority are men — also needs addressing.
So she's launching CherryPicks, a Rotten Tomatoes-style site featuring female-only critics so they can recommend movies to like-minded women headed to the multiplex or streaming services and get their critical voices amplified.
"We're creating a platform where women...
Founded by director, producer, actor, and distributor Miranda Bailey, along with author, producer, and digital entrepreneur Rebecca Odes, the new service will launch its multi-platform website later this year. Later this month, the pair will introduce Cherry Bites, billed as “an email subscription that will spotlight women in criticism and female perspectives on media.”
“For years now, our industry has been proclaiming that we need change to include more minorities and females on both sides of the camera. This would be impossible to do in a speedy fashion,
An actor, director, distributor, and producer, Miranda Bailey makes independent films through her company Cold Iron Pictures. Her directing credits include “The Pathological Optimist” and “Greenlit.” She produced the Oscar-nominated feature “The Squid and the Whale” as well as “The Diary of a Teenage Girl,” which won an Independent Spirit Award.
“You Can Choose Your Family” will premiere at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival on March 11.
W&H: Describe the film for us in your own words.
Mb: “You Can Choose Your Family” is about a 17-year-old boy who finds out his father has a secret family and blackmails him. It is a quirky father-son coming-of-age story set in the early 1990s, which explores the complicated relationship we all have with telling the truth about who we are and accepting who we are.
W&H: What drew you to this story?
Mb: I was drawn to
Miranda fought like hell to prove to her doctors that she was having a heart attack, and in the interim, we found out more about the beloved chief of Grey Sloan Memorial.
Join TV Fanatics Stacy Glanzman, Paul Dailly, and Jasmine Blu as they break down this character-centric hour. Join the discussion below!
On a scale of 1-10, how much did you appreciate a Miranda centric episode after all of these years? Did you believe she would be killed off at any point?
Stacy: 10. I don't always love these character-centric episodes, but as long as they're doing them, it's about time Miranda got one. She's one of the originals, and there was so much about her past that we never knew.
No, I never believed she'd be killed off. I was confident she'd survive. Plus, if she had died
Grey’s Anatomy Review: Bailey Teaches Us To Be Our Own Advocate
On Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 12, Grey Sloan Memorial's finest will be engaging in a little friendly competition with a grand prize of $5 million dollars.
What's a girl gotta do to get in on that?!
Jackson came up with a competition of their own akin to the Harper Avery one, and this time he gets to partake in it himself. It's just what the hospital needed to revitalize the field and get the doctors passionate about research in their fields.
It's so appealing that even Richard is in on it. Unfortunately, he hoodwinked April into being the judge, so she can't compete with the others. She's not at all bitter about that.
Speaking of April, while this jaded, faithless woman is a far cry from the Little Miss Sunshine we have become accustomed to over all these years, I'm not mad at her shades

We can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. An indie cover of "Chasing Cars" or "How to Save A Life" didn't start playing and Dr. Miranda Bailey lived to see another day. It was a close call though.
If you learned anything from Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 11, you learned the importance of advocating for yourself.
After 14 seasons, we were finally gifted with some background on Miranda Bailey.
Grey's Anatomy has fully embraced bottle episodes that focus on one particular character and a couple of supporting characters, and why shouldn't they? Those were the best installments from Grey's Anatomy Season 13, and when it's regarding a character who has been on the show since the very beginning, it's all the better.
This hour was inspired by someone working on the show's very own experience,
