The Women’s Movement of the 1970s empowered women to step behind the camera in larger numbers. Their pioneering work platformed voices, stories and issues previously ignored or misrepresented.

The ground-breaking directors highlighted in this series made films outside the mainstream industry, frequently through activist film cooperatives and collectives.  Their work was screened in ‘consciousness-raising’ groups, at political conventions and in other alternative venues, and was often intended to spark discussion and action on women’s issues.

The Women’s Film Preservation Fund of New York Women in Film & Television has preserved a large portion of these important Second Wave Feminist films, and their restorations form the core of this season.

Our 2018 season explores how the arts respond to, reflect and potentially effect change in the social and political landscape.
