A Film Festival Celebrating Women’s History: Women Take the Reel 2019

wttr_calendar2019

The Women Take the Reel Film Festival 2019 will take place this March! This annual film festival is a collaborative effort among Women’s and Gender Studies departments involved in the Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality (as well as select institutions/universities aligned with its mission) that features films directed by women and about issues relating to gender, race, sexuality, class and/or feminism.

The focus is on intellectual investigation of these issues as well as visibility for female directors, and so every film is accompanied by a Q&A and discussion with either the film director, producer, or a faculty member from the film screening’s host institution host institution.

The month-long event is co-sponsored and hosted by the MIT Program in Women’s and Gender Studies; The Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, & Sexuality at MIT; The Boston College Women’s and Gender Studies Program; The Boston University Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program; The Brandeis University Women’s Studies Research Center; The Northeastern University Women’s Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program; The Simmons College Gender and Cultural Studies Program; The Tufts University Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program; The UMass Boston Women’s and Gender Studies Department; The Emerson College Department of Visual and Media Arts; and Lesley University.
