The Bluestockings Film Series celebrates the accomplishments of women directed short films. "This is the biggest, boldest screening yet! Stories run the gamut from the darkest of dark comedies to thoughtful dramas," says series organizer (and USM Communications and Media Studies Professor) Kate Kaminski. On Saturday May 18, some of the filmmakers will be on hand for post screening discussions.
Sunday May 19 don't miss "Why We Need the Bechdel Test Now," conversations on the importance of feminism in film, and support for women film makers. Andi Zeisler, co-founder of Bitch Magazine (www.bitchmagazine.org) and Kayna Morgan, founder of Her Film Project (www.herfilmproject.com) will be on hand to discuss the value of gender equity, both on screen and behind the camera.
