SWITCH Short Film- FIRST PLACE
NYWIFT is proud to announce the selected projects for the 2ndAnnual NYWIFT Online Shorts Festival, presented in partnership with GoIndieTV the 1st place winner in the Suspense/Thriller/Action category: "Switch" by Stavroula Toska. A woman performed by Toska is suffering from PTSD begins training as a dominatrix and is quickly forced to question everything she's believed her whole life. There are several reasons this is a stand out short: but the number one reason is the person behind the creation of "Switch", is award winning writer/director/producer Stavroula Toska and who Go Indie TV has presented her with the Outstanding Actress Award. "SWITCH", the groundbreaking and much anticipated drama series based on a true story, follows a group of women working in the BDSM industry as they navigate leading a double life, the struggle for power, identity, ambition, trauma, love and family. One would never believe this is based on a true story as many are unaware of what takes place in one's society. The second reason we were impressed with "Switch" was the award winning cast Toska secured to help tell her story:The series stars Stavroula Toska, Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis, two-time Emmy winner Cady McClain, Emmy-nominee Jon Lindstrom, India Ennenga, Eleni Yiovas, Mark Borkowski, Bobby Daniel Rodriguez, Eleni Yiovas, Catherine Eaton, Katie Maguire, Alicia Greene, Gabriel Furman, Jessica DiGiovanni, Andy Chmelko, Yukiko Miyawaki and more. The third reason is the series that airs on www.switchtheseries.com should not be the platform showcasing such talent. "Switch" could easily find a home with Showtime or HBO!.
