We could not have had the year we had without you. 2020 was hard for many reasons and in many ways, but we stuck together as a filmmaking and womxn in film community, and that made it all worthwhile. In the spirit of the holidays we wanted to highlight 12 “days” or “events” of 2020 that celebrate our community. Thank you all for your support this year and make sure to stay tuned for days 5 – 12 through out the next few days and for what’s to come in 2021. Happy Holidays!
On the first day of Cinema Femme, we highlight womxn in film at Sundance, while amplifying work by media alliances that share our mission through the #KNOWMYWORK campaign.
January 23 – 28, 2020
Cinema 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 content from around the globe.
On the second day of Cinema Femme, we bring you stories about womxn in film in Europe through our 2020 Cineuropa media partnership.
We are proud to be media partners with Cineuropa. We believe cinema can make our world feel more united, and as Cinema Femme is a platform for championing womxn in film, we also like to shine a light on the exciting work that is being done outside of the US. Through Cineuropa, we are able to widen our network and showcase interviews with womxn in the European film industry.
On the third day of Cinema Femme, we brighten your quarantine by bringing you a LIVE variety show showcasing the talents of womxn in film we’ve previously featured on our site.
On the fourth day of Cinema Femme, we lost a very important womxn in film, director Lynn Shelton (“Humpday”, “My Sister’s Sister”, “Little Fires Everywhere”). We gave you coverage with videos and interviews, while highlighting the ‘Of A Certain Age’ grant that went to Keisha Rae Witherspoon in Lynn’s honor.
