The Power of Story Pt. 3: Storytellers Game Show is made up of writers, actors, and directors. The writers write a 3-5-minute story, the actors tell the story, the directors direct the actors. The twist? Some of the actors will be telling a true story, and some will be telling a fictional story. Only the writers will know the truth, it’s up to the audience to decide what’s real and what’s fiction. Audience members will be able to ask questions throughout the show, and vote on which story they think is true. Afterwards, there will be time to continue the story conversations in the lobby.

“The Storyteller Game Show is a great event to highlight the different approaches the power of telling a story can take, from the writing. directing and acting roles. Each piece of that creative collaboration is a power unto itself. At New Mexico Women in Film we are passionate about all voices being heard. From the beginning of time stories help us do that, by connecting us through the stories we tell one another. And we love that the audience is encouraged to be part of these conversations and stories too” said Anne Stirling, series producer and NMWIF Board VP.

The Power of Story is an event presented by the producing/directing team of Anne Stirling, Marth Becktell, Bekah Hamilton and Barbara Kerford. Tickets to the event are $10 for non-NMWIF members, and free for members.
