25th ANNIVERSARY RETROSPECTIVE - OVERVIEW

January 17 - 18, 2015


Join us to celebrate the wrap of our 25th anniversary year as we host a retrospective of films by women representing documentaries and shorts over the past 25 years.

The Retrospective takes place Saturday, January 17th and Sunday, January 18th, 2015 at SFU Woodward’s Goldcorp Centre for the Arts at 149 West Hastings Street in downtown Vancouver.

Curated by Maureen Levitt, the retrospective is a careful selection of documentary and short films directed by BC women over the past twenty-five years. It leans towards works with strong female leads who define themselves in opposition to a dominant norm – be it social, political, familial or cultural.  In these struggles, women demonstrate a strength and vibrancy that will inspire us, today, reflecting positive strategies as we move forward.

About the curator: Maureen draws from many years of experience in her past role as Commissioning Editor for Vision TV, and presently as Western Office Development Executive for Super Channel. Maureen consistently supports women directors and women’s stories, doing so because she believes women know how to tell great stories, and the lives of girls and women make exceptional films.
