APRIL 11
The Film Industry Through Women’s Eyes

This session will address the history of a successful 20-year women’s film festival, including the range of topics covered over the past two decades. A panel of women involved in filmmaking will discuss the hurdles they faced over the years. One of the panelists, via video, will be Amy Adrion, director and producer. We will view a portion of her film, Half the Picture, which premiered at Sundance in 2018. It is a documentary of women directors candidly talking about their experiences in the film and television world. Through this glimpse of the industry, we will learn how film, seen “through women’s eyes,” has provided a new depth and perspective of the world.

Terry Brackett was the director of Through Women’s Eyes International Film Festival for nine years and is currently on its advisory board. She is a retired Federal Energy Regulatory Commission attorney, has done volunteer work on issues impacting women, is a member of the board of the U.S. National Committee for U.N. Women, and is on advisory boards of the Asolo Repertory Theatre and WUSF Public Radio.

Amy Adrion is a director and writer whose work has screened at the Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca, and Los Angeles Film Festivals, been broadcast on PBS and MTV, and won numerous awards including a Directors Guild of America (DGA) Student Film Award and the Impact Award at the Sarasota Film Festival / Through Women’s Eyes Film Festival. Amy is a graduate of the MFA Film Directing program at UCLA, with an undergraduate degree in Literature and Theology from Georgetown University.
