We started planning for Women’s History Month 2020 in September 2019: researching our presentation, “Women Filmmakers of the Pacific Northwest,” grant-writing, marketing, contacting schools, libraries and public places, and rehearsing. By February we had our schedule set up to show WFPNW at nine locations in and around Lane County.
We made it to five. In mid-March, the coronavirus triggered a statewide shutdown. For the sake of public safety, we cancelled our remaining dates.
Since then, we’ve been working on an online version, and I’m happy to announce that “Women Filmmakers of the Pacific Northwest” is now available for viewing. Big thanks go to Claire Graman, who researched, created and narrated the presentation.
