The festival features short plays and short films from all over the world. Bedford Playhouse will be hosting The Best of the Fest: GCB3 Films on Sept. 14.  

Theater Revolution Artistic Director Gabrielle Fox said, “Women artists are underrepresented at every level of the entertainment industry and while there has been progress, we need more.”  

Adrienne LaValley of Peekskill will be directing her play. Cat Banks of Peekskill will direct and act in a play. Mel Nocera of Yorktown Heights also will direct. 

Other Rivertowns residents you’ll see in the fest: Susan Ward from Ossining will be directing Goodnight, Annabelle by Susan Jennifer Polese; Michelle Concha Herko, of Ossining, appears in the film Star Quality directed by Ward and written by Evelyn Mertens of Briarcliff Manor

Adrienne LaValley of Peekskill will direct her play.

Miranda’s roles include “mole woman” Donna Maria Nuñez on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and the medium Beatriz on Archive 81, both on Netflix. She co-starred in indie feature Come Find Me, a Latinx mother-daughter story with Tovah Feldshuh. Her solo show, “I Am Here. I Belong.
