The Women of Color Film & Video Festival

About the Festival

The UCSC Women of Color Film and Video Festival, presently celebrating its tenth year, has established itself as a significant event for independent exhibition and dialogue. The festival, founded by Margaret R. Daniel, has had the honor of previewing a number of celebrated works before they were screened in national festivals. It was also the first film festival to host a discussion with the co-producers and co-directors of the Audre Lorde Documentary Project.

In addition, the festival has served as an important location for women of color to meet audiences from a variety of backgrounds--students, artists, campus staff and faculty, media arts personnel, and community members and leaders. Most importantly, the festival has provided an opportunity for women of color film and videomakers to interact with a diverse audience in critical discussions about the production and circulation of our images. This year's festival continues this vital project.
