Thoughts on the Women’s Film Festival

Thoughts on the Women’s Film Festival:

The differences are starkly noticeable, in both breadth and depth. Instead of a long span of many days’ worth of films in multiple venues along Main Street, there are two weekends in only one location. Instead of each film being shown twice so the viewing public can get multiple opportunities to see the favorites, each is shown once. Instead of the highest quality films for and about women, we get some good ones and some mediocre ones. Logistical glitches abound (like the single movie in one of the time-slots being only 30 minutes long).
