How it all began
I met Leslie Lapage in 2009 through a mutual friend. There are not enough words in to describe Leslie. She is passionate, resilient, a fire ball, a true “go-getter”, an all around fantastic woman and she KNOWs how to get things done with a tiny budget or handling hundreds and thousands of dollars on film projects that she takes on.She is another woman who I admire for all of her accomplishments and her tenacity. When I am speaking with Leslie over the phone because she is in California it’s difficult not to just stand upright or to be “at ease” because she has so much energy and a force in her voice that says “get out of my way..I’m coming!”
The La Femme International film festival is all about recognizing women in the areas of film, tv and entertainment.
