GIRL FROM GOD'S COUNTRY
Screening in NYC on March 25

Join us at the SVA Theatre on March 25 at 2pm for a free screening of the documentary GIRL FROM GOD'S COUNTRY by director Karen Day in recognition of S.W.A.N. (Support Women Artists Now) Day, an annual event on the last Saturday of March that celebrates women artists.

GIRL FROM GOD'S COUNTRY is the untold story of the first female independent filmmaker and action-adventure heroine, Nell Shipman (1892-1970), who left Hollywood to make her films in Idaho. An unadulterated, undiscovered adventure tale of a pioneering woman who rewrote the rules of filmmaking, and, in so doing, paved the way for independent voices–especially prominent female voices in today's film industry.

There will be a Q&A and reception following the screening. Learn more or register to attend.


Out of the top 100 films of 2015, Women fared best as producers (22%), followed by editors (20%), executive producers (18%), writers (11%), directors (7%), and cinematographers (3%). -The Celluloid Ceiling: Behind-the-Scenes Employment of Women on the Top 100, 250, and 500 Films of 2015

Sale! REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD


THE REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD chronicles the US tour of a group of Black lesbian poets and musicians, who become present-day stewards of a historical movement to build community among queer women of color. Their journey to strengthen their community is enriched by insightful interviews with leading Black feminist thinkers and historians, including Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Nikki Finney, and Alexis Deveaux. As the group tours the country, the film reveals their aspirations and triumphs, as well as the unique identity challenges they face encompassing gender, race, and sexuality. This is a rarely seen look into a special sisterhood - one where marginalized voices are both heard and respected.

Special Offer! Buy THE REVIVAL at full price and receive select titles for $99. See titles and details.
