Dedicated to the Life and Work of Audre Lorde
The festival was expanded with media arts personnel and filmmakers
First year the festival held independent call for submissions
The festival became a collective endeavor of six dedicated members of the Women of Color Research Cluster.
Focused on the Rupture of identities.
Produced by a coordinating committee of six members of the Women of Color Research Cluster.
Incoporated a workshop on Visualizing Theory and Pedagogical Practices for Women of Color
The festival remains centrally related to the work of the cluster and was this year, for the first time, produced with the input and energies of its general membership.
The film festival will explore the possibilities of seeing silences and imagining trans-formations as a disruption of borders--borders of the family, violence, survival, race and nationality, history and memory, immigration and queerness.
