Women in Film [IN PERSON]

12:30 PM - 1:45 PM
Emma S. Clark Memorial Library
Community Room

Event Details

Women have always been a force in filmmaking, but often their talents were suppressed by a male-dominated industry. Filmmakers like Alice Guy-Blanche, Lois Weber and Mabel Noman were pioneers. 
After the rise of feminism in the 60s and 70s, directors such as Penny Marshall, Kathryn Bigelow, Sofia Coppola and others became visible in the industry. Greg Blank will be speaking about the dynamics of sexism in the film industry, the challenges women have met and often overcome, and the artistic achievements of women directors through the years.
