SP19-50 Listening to Women Week 5
APRIL 11 The Film Industry Through Women’s Eyes This session will address the history of a successful 20-year women’s film festival, including the range of topics covered over the past two decades. A panel of women involved in filmmaking will discuss the hurdles they faced over the years. One of the panelists, via video, will be Amy Adrion, director and producer. We will view a portion of her film, Half the Picture, which premiered at Sundance in 2018. It is a documentary of women directors candidly talking about their experiences in the film and television world. Through this glimpse of the industry, we will learn how film, seen “through women’s eyes,” has provided a new depth and perspective of the world.
Terry Brackett was the director of Through Women’s Eyes International Film Festival for nine years and is currently on its advisory board. She is a retired Federal Energy Regulatory Commission attorney. Amy Adrion is a director and writer whose work has screened at the Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca and Los Angeles Film Festivals.
