Join The Women’s Film Preservation Fund as they present a screening and Q&A of Trailblazers of Early Cinema: A silent film program of pioneer filmmakers. Moderated by WFPF Founder Barbara Moss with guest panelists Kim Tomadjoglou and Buckey Grimm. Films available Jan 28th-Feb 1st, with Q&A on Feb 1st at 4pm ET.
The filmmakers in this silent program represent some of the first women to make films in the early days of cinema (1910s-1920s). They wore multiple hats on their productions - from writer, director and producer to sometimes actor. Many of these filmmakers’ works have been forgotten. It is Women’s Film Preservation Fund’s mission to preserve these engaging, cinematic treasures and share them with a new audience.READ MORE
