HOW IS THIS WOMEN’S FILM EVENT DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHERS?
Be part of a new wave of narrative film that celebrates women’s stories and the accomplishments of women in film! The Bluestocking Film Series is biannual and conceived of and run by volunteers. This grassroots showcase for women directors puts narrative first and women’s stories front & center. We’re committed to bringing the best, most provocative, and innovative woman-directed films to Portland, Maine’s film-loving audiences.
There is no time like NOW to be a woman filmmaker and to be telling women’s stories. With a media spotlight increasingly turned toward the gender imbalance in the film industry – whether behind or in front of the camera – and the dearth of meaningful narrative about women’s lives, the Bluestocking Film Series is set to explode myths and shake up perceptions about the kinds of stories we tell about ourselves. If you want to see more films directed by women that explore & celebrate the complexity of our lives, please consider supporting – and submitting your Bechdel-passing film to – the Bluestocking Film Series.
