FORGETTING CHRISTMAS featuring Victoria Rowell and starring Melan Perez is going to Martha’s Vineyard. The feature film shot entirely in Maryland is an official selection for the 2023 Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival. Forgetting Christmas is produced by WIFV member and past WIFV board president, Carletta S. Hurt.

While working on films, Ms. Hurt also completed her Doctor of Philosophy in Urban Leadership and Entrepreneurship with a concentration in Urban Education Leadership from The University of the District of Columbia on May 13, 2023. She is one of the first five students to earn a PhD from UDC’s inaugural doctoral program in the history of the institution. The group has been coined the “Fabulous Five”.
