Women Take the Reel
A Film Festival Celebrating Women’s History Month
This annual film festival is a collaborative effort among Women’s and Gender Studies departments involved in the Graduate Consortium in Women’s Studies (as well as select institutions/universities aligned with its mission) that features films about issues relating to gender, race, sexuality, class and/or feminism. 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.****
