Feminist Film Series
The Feminist Film Series is a year-round feature film screening series programmed and hosted by the Barnard College Media Center. This semester we are partnering with the Center for Accessibility Resources & Disability Services to offer a live Q&A with several brilliant filmmakers. We engage with the community to challenge what feminist film is, and aim to create a positive discourse for fellowship and social change amongst media makers and media audiences.
