Join Academy Award nominee Uma Thurman, Emmy Award-winning producer Christine Vachon, and other panelists for a screening, presentation and audience discussion. Presented in partnership with Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, this special event is part of NYICFF’s groundbreaking Girls’ POV Program.
IF SHE CAN SEE IT, SHE CAN BE IT! will explore why, despite the many accomplishments of female media-makers over the past 30 years, onscreen gender roles remain largely stuck in the past. Panelists will discuss their experiences and answer questions from the audience about portraying and creating unique female roles for film and television.
