Cineme Femme is about amplifying the voices of underrepresented filmmakers and those who support them. During the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, in addition to our own original interviews, we will be posting excellent content from other media outlets and platforms to make sure you know about the best from around the globe.
Our social media Sundance 2020 campaign is called #KnowMyWork where we feature female filmmakers and womxn in film and their work. All of the featured are connected to Sundance in some way. Follow this post for updates throughout the festival and follow us on our socials (FB, Instagram, Twitter)
These media amplification partnerships are also in alignment with the Sundance Film Festival’s Press Inclusion Initiative which aims to expand access for a more inclusive pool of writers, critics, and publication.
