Stuck in the House? Attend the Virtual Women’s Film Festival
With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, many people are staying at home and taking a break from public activity and gatherings. Within the past week, the CDC has strongly recommended that people practice “social distancing” and limit as much human contact as possible until the pandemic is under control. The state government has implemented its own precautionary measures, from school closings to restaurants and movie theaters temporarily shutting down. Despite the fact that many individuals aren’t going out, there are still some ways to have some entertainment while at home. For the fourth year in a row, the Temple University Film and Media Arts department is hosting the Women’s Film Festival, online!
The festival launched on March 18th at 5pm, and featured a selection of a few of the films created by women writers, directors, and cinematography students in the Film and Media Arts department at Temple University.
Because it is virtual, the festival is available through Diamond Screen’s official Facebook account, with links to all the films on the page available to view through Vimeo. The content is free and open to public, and the films are available to view whenever you want. After you watch the films, Diamond Screen and the Miseducating en Femme student group encourage viewers to vote on your favorite!
This is a really fun way to see the immense talent that young students have, all while keeping yourself entertained while at home. Visit their Facebook pages for more information!
