Women Take the Reel

A Film Festival Celebrating Women’s History Month

The theme of this year’s festival is Activism.

The focus is on the intellectual investigation of these issues, so every film is accompanied by a Q&A and discussion with the film director, producer, local activists and practitioners, and/or faculty members from the host institution for each film.

****All films are free and open to the public.****
