Throughout Spring 2019, the SNF Parkway Theatre celebrates important filmic contributions from women creators working today. From the co-creator of a beloved comedy series, to a cinematographer on meteoric rise; from a renowned producer, to a first-time documentarian; the series highlights the variety and importance of cinematic work being done by women at all levels, behind the camera. Each event will frame a film screening with a conversation about the filmmaker’s work on the particular project and their career-at-large.
