Boston Women's Film Festival

September 26–29, 2019

The Boston Women’s Film Festival returns with a varied lineup of narrative and documentary films that highlight women’s contributions to cinema over the past year. Highlights include Julia Hart’s Fast Color, a superhero story of Black Girl Magic the futuristic fairytale Paradise Hills, starring Emma Roberts and Awkwafina; the stunning documentary Martha: A Picture Story, about pioneering photographer Martha Cooper, who captured the burgeoning graffiti and hip-hop movements in 1980s New York City; and Knives and Skin, a surreal tale of murder with notes of Twin Peaks. And don't miss our "Cinematographer Spotlight," Swallow, about a housewife who starts to exhibit disturbing behavior, richly lensed by Katelin Arizmendi. Additional screenings take place at Harvard Square’s historic Brattle Theatre. Festival passes will be available soon at bostonwomensfest.org.
