Anita is a founding member and past president of the South County Filmmakers (SCF), Wakefield, Rhode Island, a group of retirees who met in a class about movie making and decided to give it a try! They recently completed their fifth short film. Anita has been involved with the Mystic Film Festival since its inaugural year. First as a filmmaker, and since 2019, as a programmer.
