MIAMI, March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Artist Mollie Kellogg's short film, Nobody Loves Fat G, featuring her Incognito Witch character, has been selected from nearly 400 entries as one of the short films in the 2014 Women's International Film Festival (WIFF), considered the premier international cultural event supporting women artists.
Nobody Loves Fat G screens on March 28 at 9pm at the James L. Knight International Center, located at 400 Southeast 2nd Avenue in Miami, Florida. For WIFF tickets and information visit www.womensfilmfest.com/event/nobody-loves-fat-g/.
Nobody Loves Fat G—which has screened at festivals in New York City, San Diego, Minnesota, Jakarta, Indonesia, and a touring youth program in Mumbai, India—finds G the Incognito Witch bombarded by infomercial advertising promising happiness, acceptance and love. She begins a trial-and-error search for a form of fitness that she hopes will bring these rewards.
The 10-minute film, written and directed by Kellogg, was inspired by Kellogg's draped, figurative paintings celebrating hidden magick. The Incognito Witch Project expanded to video starring Kellogg as G (short for Goddess), the figure in the first painting of the series.
"Both on canvas and on video, an Incognito Witch is an inner portrait," Kellogg says, "exposing and celebrating the magick hidden to assimilate to societal pressures. The identifying marks of an Incognito Witch are the coloration under the eyes, messy lipstick and the nature adornment in the hair. The females love their jewels. G never goes anywhere without her pearls."
