The Citizen Jane Film Festival was created to spotlight and celebrate films made by women.
In 2009, women comprised only 7% of all directors, producers, writers, cinematographers, and editors working on the top 250 domestic grossing films. This means that if you, like most of us, get most of your exposure to film by going to the multiplex, you are missing out on an incredibly rich trove of amazing films.
These are the films you will get to see at Citizen Jane. Women continue to be under-represented in many areas of media. The numbers, however, do not reflect the amazing breadth, depth, and beauty of work made by women all over the world. The Citizen Jane Film Festival, along with its allies from other film festivals and arts organizations, hopes to make this work more visible and to strengthen the network of feminists (of all genders!).
