A Review: 2017 Through Women's Eyes International Film Festival!
We are celebrating! Our donation to USNC and UN Women will be the largest yet. This was made possible by increased attendance and by the wonderful work of our tireless volunteers.
TWE and Chapter volunteers welcomed viewers to the very best in new, groundbreaking films produced by established and emerging female filmmakers from around the world. This year we enjoyed 22 films (15 shorts and seven features) selected from more than 300 worldwide submissions.
The momentum continued throughout the weekend, with over 120 people attending our Filmmaker's Reception, meeting filmmakers, and enjoying great food and companionship with TWE attendees.
Watchers gave TWE high marks indeed! All of our full length features received an audience rating of at least 4.5 out of 5.0! Three of our full length films were in the running for the SFF audience award.
Finally, we extend deep thanks to TWE Artistic Director Ann Fries for her unfailing dedication for the past seven years. No one has been more instrumental than Ann (right) in selecting the films that draw and enthrall our generous audiences. She has been the face and voice of TWE, tirelessly speaking to the press and local organizations about the wonderful filmmakers and films featured in TWE each year. Thank you, Annie, for your vision, leadership, and commitment. While Ann is retiring from TWE, she will continue to support the valuable work of UN Women and remain on our Chapter Board.
