of color now have a voice through the art of filmmaking.
Women of Color Productions is helping this voice be heard,
by hosting its fifth annual, “Through Her Eyes: Women
of Color Film Festival”. They are looking for many
organization’s executive producer, Jaclyn Wade, has
a strong personal liking for film, which is what inspired
her to start the tradition of a film festival. Miss Wade’s
goal is to create a non-existent venue for women of color.
To accomplish this goal, she hopes that major distributors
pick up films. She also hopes to gain an international reputation,
especially to gain recognition by major film distributors
such as Sundance and Cannes.
The Festival is home to a diversely profiled group of artists.
Some are well-known and respected such as S. Hamilton from
Novascosha and Paula Brancato from Los Angeles. The participants
in this festival are African American, Asian, Latina, East
Indian, Middle Eastern, Native American, and more.
The films that will be shown at the festival are about or
by women of color. Jaclyn Wade describes them as, “thought
provoking and powerful”. There are over fifteen interesting
films, ranging from thought-provoking dramas, to comical
experiences. These films capture the lives and experiences
of women from all backgrounds. For a clear description of
all of the films shown, visit their website at http://www.womenofcolorpro.citymax.com/page/page/621070.htm.
Women of Color Productions are looking for more films to
be entered for next year, and a place to host their after
party. They can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most
importantly, they want many to attend. For more details
