OFFICIAL SELECTION AS A SPOTLIGHT FILM AT THE BENTONVILLE FILM FESTIVAL (BFF).
A ONE-OF-A-KIND FESTIVAL CHAMPIONING WOMEN AND DIVERSITY IN ALL ASPECTS OF ENTERTAINMENT MEDIA.
Painted Woman, the film, began with Amber Lindley's first meeting with prolific western novelist, Dusty Richards, at a writers' convention. The Mustanger and the Lady, Richard's 150th published novel, seemed like the perfect story for Lindley to re-tell on the big screen. When James Cotten began to collaborate, the screenplay emerged as Painted Woman.
The Making Of
The producers decided on Oklahoma when it came time to film. The varied landscapes provided Painted Woman with exactly what the story needed to immerse the audience in the romance of the "old west". Everything was filmed on location - from historical mansions and homesteads, the city streets of Guthrie to the Cimarron River. Authenticity was priority. Extreme care was taken with the costumes and sets. Even the details of weaponry, leather pieces or the type of rope used in a scene were chosen to add to the overall experience for Painted Woman's audience.
Painted Woman team is thrilled to announce that there will be a spotlight screening at the 2017 Bentonville Film Festival. BFF is a one of a kind annual event which will champion women and diversity in all aspects of entertainment media. Painted Woman is honored to screen at BFF and looking forward to the panel discussion following the film.
