Modern Day Icons: Philanthropic

A love of film and the arts drove Leoni Kibbey to create her own film festival, providing a much needed enriching and cultural boost to her community. From screenings, workshops and acting lessons, the not-for-profit event provided a wealth of fun and feel-good events for residents and helped to shine a light on young aspiring filmmakers from St Albans to Sao Paulo. She drew attention to the Bechdel test during the festival, which measures positive depictions of women, long before it became dinner party conversation.
