Bay Area Women Filmmakers Tell All

Please join us for clips and conversation with three award-winning Bay Area women documentary filmmakers.

These women are changing the way we see our world through their important work. They will share their process of making the films, choosing, and developing their subjects as we view a clip from each of their latest films. They will also discuss the challenges they have faced as women in the industry and in getting their films funded and distributed.
