Explore the Works of Female Filmmakers at the Women Texas Film Festival
Many great women are in Hollywood, but far too few are able to get their movies made. With every year that goes by that’s changing — too slowly, but we won’t ignore the progress.
Friday through Sunday, the inaugural Women Texas Film Festival showcases a selection of “female-driven film” presented with the rule: Qualified films were made with women in at least one key creative role, such as writer, producer, director, cinematographer, editor or composer.
Friday’s 7 p.m. opening film is Australia’s Girl Asleep (2015), a coming-of-age story with a few fantastical twists, directed by Rosemary Myers. Saturday and Sunday offer five more features and four compilations of shorts. Tickets to each screening are $11, and many features are preceded by a short.
It’s hard to leave home sometimes – trust us, we know. But Greenhaven Apartments in McKinney, Texas believes it is important to not only stay active in your community, but to also express curiosity about new subjects. This event is the perfect chance to spread your roots and learn new things!
