Vidiots Shelf of #52FilmsByWomen


We are giddy to present Vidiots‘ new shelf of #52FIlmsByWomen. Vidiots Foundation started as “as a movie rental store with a fierce commitment to making as wide an array of films available as possible.” Since then, they have expanded their organization to do programming and outreach work.

Vidiots has compiled a shelf of films by women in their original store. Their #52FilmsByWomen shelf is culled from lists provided by WIF staff members, and includes an add-on with favorite picks from Vidiots staff (scroll down for both complete lists). If you’re in Santa Monica, stop by the store and a rent a flick!

If you haven’t pledged to watch #52FilmsByWomen, do it now!
