Look What She Done! is celebrating Women’s History Month by holding a virtual film festival that will run throughout the entire month. The festival will feature short films that focus on exceptional women from throughout history. The event started on the first of March and will end on the 31st of March this year.
Look What She Did! is a non-profit organisation that produces short documentaries that tell the tales of remarkable women who have made important contributions in a variety of sectors, such as the arts, politics, and more. By telling the tales of extraordinary women who have gone before them, the group hopes to educate, inspire, and ultimately give women and girls more agency in their lives and in the world.
During the course of Women’s History Month, the Women’s History Month Film Festival will screen a different short film each day. These films will focus on women from a variety of eras and settings. On the Look What She Did! website and via its many social media platforms, viewers can access the films at no cost and watch them online.
Stories of women who have overcome barriers in their different fields are going to be featured at this year’s festival. Some of these ladies include Mae Jemison, who was the first African American woman to travel in space, and Mary Church Terrell, who was an activist for civil rights and a suffragist. The life of Biddy Mason, a former slave who went on to become a successful businesswoman and philanthropist, is depicted in one of the documentaries that focuses on lesser-known women who have made significant contributions to society.
In addition, a wide range of subjects are discussed throughout the movie, such as the suffrage of women, reproductive rights, and environmental activism. There is a companion discussion guide that goes along with each movie, and it invites viewers to explore deeper into the narratives and topics that are presented in the movie.
In addition to the film festival, Look What She Done! will also be presenting a virtual panel discussion on the 22nd of March. The panel will feature women who have made major achievements in their various industries. Dr. Lydia Villa-Komaroff, one of the first Latinas to achieve a Ph.D. in science, is one of the panellists. Other panellists include Dany Sigwalt, a civil rights attorney and champion for underrepresented populations, and Kafi D. Blumenfield, a nonprofit executive and community organiser.
The Women’s History Month Film Festival is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn about and celebrate the accomplishments of outstanding women throughout history. The festival takes place during Women’s History Month. Viewers are prompted to consider both the strides that have been made and the tasks that remain to be completed in order to realise the goal of gender equality through the use of the videos and the supporting discussion guides.
