(Black PR Wire) The African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) - in collaboration with the Office of Diversity and Community Affairs at Teachers College, Columbia university - hosts The Women's History Month Film Series, a selection of films celebrating films made by and celebrating women.
The film industry is a male dominated industry worldwide. The selection of films in ADIFF’s Women Month’s Film Series is a modest contribution to the work of national and international women filmmakers who, against all odds, have broken the Glass Ceiling and managed to create a meaningful piece of cinematic art. Films hailing from Ethiopia, Tunisia, the USA, Cuba, Brazil, Nigeria, Morocco, New Zealand, Canada, Samoa and Chad are part of the program.
Some of the films deal with women but other films by some of these authors go behind the camera to speak about men, and they do it with a firm hand. They talk on issues of incredible relevance today such as Islam and women, racial identity, gender identity, healing from abuse, tradition & modernity, race and education in Latin-America and the USA and more. These are revolutionary women whose works deserve an appreciation and understanding that some of them have never had due to the fact they’re women speaking with their voice in a male dominated field.
ADIFF Women's History Month Film Series virtually in the entire USA, including Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands from March 18 - 22, 2022!
Ticket prices will range from $10 to $12 for one screening/program and $45 for an all-access pass.
The selection is comprised of 17 fiction and documentary films. Tickets for this online event are available through https://nyadiff.org
