We are proud to share info about the Women’s March in Park City on January 21, 2017, during the 2017 Festival. This is an event not to be missed by attendees. From the event page:
We, in the creative and Park City communities, stand in solidarity with the rest of our country in demonstrating our respect for freedom, human rights, our safety and health, and in recognizing that the diversity of our country is our greatest strength.
We open this march and event to everyone who respects human rights, civil liberties, and diversity. Despite its title, like the marches happening nationwide, this march is for women AND men.
We have an opportunity in the creative communities to spread hope, tolerance and inclusiveness in our art and with our voices. We relish the chance to join Park City, its organizations and citizens, and our larger nationwide community on this day.
More details including route, exact starting location, and donation links to come. Please stay tuned.
Women In Film celebrates 12 years of working with the Sundance Institute, and will present its tenth annual filmmakers’ panel discussion at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Featuring a distinguished panel of select female filmmakers and media-makers, this panel’s subjects range from explorations of the obstacles challenging women as they work towards getting more female driven projects and stories through the pipeline, to what compels an artist to say “yes” to a specific project and what makes an executive buy the film.
