Distribution plans for the show target, cable television and public access media outlets in American cities where the largest Liberian communities in the US intersect with African American communities.  Education and audience-building are goals of this show in anticipation of a Spotlight on Girls documentary film about Liberian girls and women.

The festival is an annual event sponsored by the US-based alumni of the St. Theresa’s Convent (STC) School in Monrovia, who have formed a nonprofit organization called SELF to support Liberian girls’ educational needs. During Friskies Fest, accomplished Liberian women living in Diaspora in the US pay homage to their countrywomen for their achievements and contributions to the Liberian community.
  • interviewed the Honorable Felicia Coleman, Chief Prosecutor for the Gender-based Sexual Violence Unit, Liberian Ministry of Justice for inclusion in an upcoming Spotlight on Girls television show.

  • is in preproduction on a documentary film that tells the –healing stories– of resilient Liberian survivors of systemic gender-based sexual violence perpetrated during and in the aftermath of the civil war; and of a healing project in Liberia that engages women, men and families.
