The final installment of the Citizen Jane Film Series is tomorrow.
Meera Menon, a writer, director and editor, and Laura Goode, a screenwriter, novelist and poet, will screen their film “Farah Goes Bang” at 7 p.m. Wednesday in Charters Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
“Farah Goes Bang” premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last year, during which Menon was also awarded the inaugural Nora Ephron Prize for groundbreaking women filmmakers by Tribeca and Vogue. A year earlier, Goode executed the successful $75,000 Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the film.
The road trip comedy follows three twenty-something women stumping for John Kerry during the 2004 presidential campaign.
The filmmakers on Thursday will host a workshop, “Stop Asking Permission: Promoting Your Film.” That presentation starts at 10 a.m. in Room 27 of Helis Communication Center. Anyone interested in attending should RSVP to [email protected].
The Citizen Jane Film Series is supported, in part, by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which awarded the series a $10,000 grant to bring nationally recognized female filmmakers to campus.
