Event Description

Join us to celebrate the wrap of our 25th anniversary year at this two-day festival, celebrating the best of BC women’s stories in documentary or short.

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 Super Channel exec. Maureen Levitt, the Retrospective includes films about female characters defining themselves in opposition to a dominant norm –be it social, political, familial or cultural– and in that struggle, demonstrating the strength to overcome, and for their vibrant voices to be heard. These women are role models who provide us with positive, forward strategies.
All films are directed by women who were BC-based at the time the films were made.

Screenings take place from 11 am till 7 pm on both days.

About curator Maureen Levitt: Maureen has drawn 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 has always supported women directors and women’s stories. She has done so not because of any quota requirements, but because she truly thinks women know how to tell great stories, and the lives of girls and women make exceptional films.

"People think the women's movement is dead, passé, irrelevant. They should watch this film."
