Co-director of Citizen Jane Film Festival Paula Elias says there will be 40 films to show throughout the weekend. This festival was created to spotlight and celebrate films made by women.

“…So that means more than 90 percent every Sony Theater the multiplex is made by man, and  waiver were the  50 percent of the population so we feel that what the most powerful cultural mediums we should have a stronger present,” Elias said.

Elias also says the Citizen Jane Film Festival makes this work more visible and to strengthen the network of filmmakers.

Two dozen feature-length and short films and special events will be held at Stephens College, Ragtag Cinema and other locations in Columbia.
