When Festival Founder Meira Blaustein and noted Critic Thelma Adams programmed their "Amazing Women in Film" panel for the first time in 2004, the morning events were the B-side of the male-heavy producer's panel that followed. The audience was all women. And they were curious and engaged. Over the years, the panel gathered notable high profile women directors, producers and actors.
