Hosted by the Women’s Resources Center of the Office of Inclusion and Intercultural Relations, the Annual Feminist Film Festival welcomes films from undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. People underrepresented in the media field are especially encouraged to submit a film to the festival. The Annual Feminist Film Festival is a grassroots event that utilizes art and alternative media to bring social issues into the fore. The goal of the festival is to showcase independent film spanning documentary, narrative, and experimental genres in order to explore perspectives often missing from mainstream media and culture. Now in its 2nd year, the festival strives to serve as a space for underrepresented artists and filmmakers’particularly women and people of color’to raise consciousness concerning issues related to gender, race, class, sexuality, and other dimensions of social inequality, as well as, the deconstruction of normalized categories of being. The University of Illinois Annual Feminist Film Festival is organized and hosted by the campus Women’s Resources Center, in collaboration with a variety of campus units and departments. Students, faculty, and staff at the University of Illinois are encouraged to get involved. For more information, contact the WRC Program Coordinator at 217.333.3137 or rstorm2@illinois.edu
