The Closing Night red carpet for the Women Texas Film Festival was as energetic, eclectic, and fun as the headlining film, QUALITY PROBLEMS. Writer, director, star, Brooke Purdy and producer Colette Freedman set the tone for WTxFF’s big finale evening that included films from representing all sections and genres at the festival: documentaries, comedy, drama, horror, etc., you name it – the women that made it were on that carpet.
