Attention film lovers: stop by The University of Tampa on Monday, Feb. 12, for a panel discussion by members of Women in Film and Television Florida and a screening of the award-winning short film Tiny Bacteria. The event begins at 7 p.m. in Reeves Theater on the second floor of the Vaughn Center and is free and open to the public.

Hosted by Dana Plays, UT professor of film, animation and new media, the program will feature members of Women in Film and Television Florida, including local casting director Rose Rosen and Tampa Bay filmmaker Victoria Jorgensen, who will show her film Tiny Bacteria. Jorgensen will also give a sneak preview of her new work Half an Hour.

Tiny Bacteria is a six-minute short film about Marthe Gellhorn, a journalist and travel writer who was Ernest Hemmingway's third wife (played by Eugenie Bondurant, best known for her role as Tigris in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2). Tiny Bacteria shows us Gellhorn's vulnerability and intricacy, and offers a simple slice of a complicated moment.

Jorgenson worked with choreographer Kellie Harmon to create the film as part of Creative Pinellas' 2017 Impact Returns Mentors Program.
