Independent Film by Independent Women is the focus of the Citizen Jane Film Festival Oct. 19-21, 2012 in Columbia, Mo. Â Visit their website for tickets & film information:Â
According to their website: Â “The Citizen Jane Film Festival grew out of a collaboration with Stephens College, a 179-year old womenâ€™s college with a growing film program. Since 2004 Stephens College has invited female filmmakers from all over the country to present their films to the students and community as part of the Citizen Jane Film Series. Growing out of the success of the film series, the Citizen Jane Film Festival first premiered in October 2008.
CJFF tackles the underrepresentation of women in the film industry head on by creating a community that engages in lively discussions featuring the filmmakers, workshops, and one-of-a-kind parties. We invite filmmakers to come join us for a creativity retreat and a chance to connect with our amazingly supportive audiences. CJFF honors female filmmakers from diverse backgrounds and in all stages of their careers, bringing filmmakers together to share their knowledge and plant the seeds of our future films. We believe that through the support of avid audiences and fellow filmmakers we can ultimately change these dismal statistics and create a better future for all of us.”
