Goodbye, winter caps—hello, summer hats! It’s that glorious time of year where many of us can switch from content creators to content consumers. NYWIFT members Mellini Kantayya and Kathryn O’Kane have put together #SummerHours, a series of fun summer books, movies, and TV shows by or about women.

My insistence that the mid 90’s to early 2000’s was the Belle Époque of independent film is well documented. Not so documented is my love teen romantic comedies (we’ll just keep that one between us, yes?). One of my favorites from that era and of that genre is The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love. Directed by Maria Maggenti and edited by NYWIFT member Susan Graef, The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love chronicles the romance of teens Randy and Evie—opposites who attract and overcome obstacles…propelling them to the one of the sweetest last-scene-of-a-rom-com ever.
