JUANITA WINS!

Updated: Jun 15, 2019

UPDATED 6/15/19:


Recently launching her 501(c)3 production company: PURPOSE Productions, Juanita produced and starred in her first short film, BXAUTIFUL NIGHTMARX, which she also co-wrote and co-directed with her producer/brand manager, Brittny Williams.


She released the film into the film festival circuit- starting in February. Since, the film has been well received. Juanita was recognized by Actors Awards in Los Angeles as a TOP 15 FINALIST for BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE FEST and ultimately awarded BEST ACTRESS with a stellar performance review.


"In BXAUTIFUL NIGHTMARX, Juanita Ingram plays Trina, Derrick's ex-wife. She is determined to get back into Derrick's life, no matter what it takes. Juanita's performance is impressive throughout- she created a rounded character who can be powerful, manipulative and unhinged at the same time. Trina's chemistry with Derrick (wonderfully portrayed by Edward Williams III) is near perfect- both characters help each other keep the tension high from the first scene."

Following that honor, Juanita was also awarded BEST ACTRESS IN AN INDIE FILM by the New York Film Awards for her amazing work as Trina in the short film.


Both her and Brittny have been awarded BEST INDIE FILMMAKERS by Festigious. The film has also earned several other laurels in the film festival circuit so far.
