Seeking Short Films directed by women for a fourth annual night of screenings Monday September 3rd at Videology in Brooklyn as part of the worldwide Directed by Women Celebration - bringing the global film community together for a film-viewing party appreciating an incredible diversity of films. #DirectedbyWomen: September 1-30, 2018 (http://directedbywomen.com/).
During this celebration, film lovers will gather together in their communities around the world for film screenings and guest filmmaker visits, all designed to focus attention on women film directors and their work.
Ours will take place in New York City. In previous years we have screened at Ryan’s Daughter on the Upper East Side and this year we are moving into more of a traditional screening arena to showcase the films at Videology - https://videologybarandcinema.com/. The event is curated by Jennifer Dean and Eric Rice who are working on a documentary celebrating the history of female filmmakers and exploring the challenges they face - the2ndSexandthe7thArt.com.
Great chance to network with other women in film and simply have fun watching movies!
We are looking for shorts of all sorts less than 10 minutes in length - directed by women. For those who are able to attend there will be a Q&A with the filmmakers after the event.
There will be no charge for admission to the screenings. The celebration is purely for the art of watching and talking about the work!
The films need to (a) be directed by women, (b) not exceed 10 minutes in length and (c) be available for screening (no exhibition conflicts of any kind).
The shorts must have English subtitles/dialogue or be able to be viewed by an English speaking audience sans subtitles
