Citizen Jane Film Festival celebrates the incredible work of women filmmakers with three action-packed days of screenings, panels, symposiums, and parties.
This year, they're hosting films and filmmakers as diverse as Shannon Plumb (Towheads), Tia Lessin (Citizen Koch), and Yvonne Welbon (The New Black). Feminist film buffs will flip for "From the Archives," a set of screenings of second-wave feminist films hosted by Emmy-winning documentarian Julia Reichert. Citizen Jane will also feature screenings of films you'll be sure to be talking about at dinner parties to come, including the creepy A Teacher and the jaw-dropping Maidentrip.
You'll also want to stick around for the CJ Symposium, an open discussion of the challenges facing women in film and what the heck we're gonna do about it.
