Between Two Palms

Actor & Filmmaker Tipper Newton

Helmerich Theater

$20, $15 mbrs.

The Studios of Key West’s Between Two Palms Takes the Stage conversation series welcomes Tipper Newton, the Los Angeles-based award-winning actor, filmmaker and musician and one of our current PEARs. She sits down with Artistic Associate, Stephen Kitsakos, to discuss her filmmaking, in front of and behind the camera, and her acting career which includes her featured role as Karen on Hulu & Fox TV’s The Mindy Project, written & produced by Mindy Kaling.

The conversation includes a screening of two of Tipper’s short films: the retro-romantic thrillers “Wild Card” (Jury Award at the Palm Springs Shortest 2022) and “The Dangerous Type” (Best Short With Legs Award at Fantastic Fest 2021). Both films are a pastiche of 80’s tropes, film noir and homages to Hollywood B-movies. Both definitely compatible with a cocktail, glass of wine or other beverage from The Studios bar.
