Women Make Movies: The First Female Directors

From the inception of the moving image in the 1890s, women have been at the forefront of the industry, yet the history of their contributions to film as an art form have largely been forgotten. Famous in their day, these women were purposely written out of the first histories of film. This virtual lecture will uncover the significance of pioneers such as Alice Guy, Lois Weber, and Dorothy Arzner. Co-presented by the Miles Nadal JCC Adult Daytime Culture and Education and the Toronto Jewish Film Society. Guest speaker: film critic Alicia Fletcher
