A Fork in the Road and Coffee Break Films on Women's Film Network

For immediate release

"A Fork in the Road," the first of three short films in a trilogy leading up to a full-length feature, written, produced, directed and filmed on location in Ann Arbor, Michigan by Ypsilanti Township native Heidi Elizabeth Philipsen-Meissner, is to be exhibited and distributed online through Women's Film Network in late summer 2008.

"I'm really excited about distribution through the Women's Film Network, where (Women's Film Network helmer) Adriana Shaw is creating opportunity for female film-makers to have their works brought to the public. This is an incredible opportunity for me and my film to gain exposure -- a film-maker's dream," said Heidi Elizabeth Philipsen-Meissner about the exhibition/distribution plans.

The award-winning, fifteen-minute short, which was a part of the official, student film selection at the Reel Women International Film Festival in L.A. this past March, is about a family man, facing financial ruin and self-defeat, who discovers that true success in life has nothing to do with money, but rather love and respect from family and friends.

"A Fork in the Road" is a completely Made in Michigan film, featuring local talent Grant Krause, Barbara Coven, Matt Anderson and Shelby Howe, local cinematographer Joshua Roth, and film editor Marc Drake; filming was on location both in Ypsilanti Township and at the Northside Grill on Broadway in Ann Arbor.
