Woman's Voices Showcase 2023
Please join us for a selection of short narratives and documentaries celebrating the voices of women and non-binary filmmakers in New York. These films represent the perspectives of women, encompassing all the complexities of identity and context.
The program is curated by Meredith Dobbs, an award-winning filmmaker. She specializes in writing and directing improv dramas, and by day works as an editor, director, and producer for Comedy Central and MTV.
A talkback with the curator and filmmakers will follow the program.
