The BleedFest festival occurs the first Sunday afternoon each month. It features shorts and features in and out of competition, works in progress, and student films. Festival founders and directors Elisabeth Fies and Brenda Fies are a filmmaking duo whose critically acclaimed feature thriller The Commune was embraced by the genre community in 2009 and 2010. BleedFest disproves the prevailing myth that there are no female filmmakers making indie genre movies.
