An evening of short films directed by women inspired by the Directed by Women global celebration now in its fifth year.
Five years ago Jennifer Dean and Eric Rice were inspired by Barbara Ann O’Leary to create an event celebrating women filmmakers and to engage in the Directed by Women September global celebration (https://directedbywomen.com).
We show films from all over the world, including by NYC locals, to provide a thought-provoking and entertaining evening. We moderate a Q&A session afterward with filmmakers in attendance. This year we have expanded to two blocks of films – because there’s just so much great stuff out there Directed by Women.
The celebration is purely for the art of watching and talking about the work!
Shorts of All Sorts is FREE, but register here to secure your seat. Drinks and food available for purchase.

Jennifer Dean and Eric Rice are also working on a feature documentary celebrating the history of female filmmakers in the U.S. and exploring the challenges they face – the2ndSexandthe7thArt.com.
Here’s a glimpse into the films included in Block #1… sharing images, trailers (where available) and insights shared by some of the filmmakers in response to the question…
“Could you please tell us about a moment during the making of your film when you could feel your vision coming together or when you overcame a challenge in a satisfying way?”
