MIND THE GAP: WOMEN | WORK | FILM
MVFF’s women’s initiative, Mind the Gap, is both a celebration and a call to action, this year exploring women, film, and technology.
In a wealth of festival-wide programming, we explore three aspects of the film and tech worlds: innovation/entrepreneurism, creativity, and gender representation. Through screenings, Q&As, panels, master classes, and special events, we highlight and explore the work and the impact of women in these fields.
Pioneers abound: the premiere of a first narrative feature by an 80-year-old artist and documentary filmmaker, PARIS CAN WAIT; the digital restoration of the first feature film by an African American woman to gain wide theatrical release, DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST; a panel about creating HIDDEN FIGURES, the highly anticipated film about the unsung female scientists at NASA; a discussion with some of the technistas behind the scenes at Walt Disney Animation Studios, and more.
Girl power rules. Be there!
