The world has changed since the last The Future of Film Is Female program at MoMA, but despite the challenges and heartbreak we’ve endured, we have had the gift of experiencing an abundance of incredible independent films directed by women. In 2020, their stories have reached wide audiences via virtual media and have become a bellwether of a changing industry; one that insists upon representation and equity in all of its forms.
The exhibition of women-directed films—and the audience relationships that it generates—is an essential element of the drive toward gender parity behind the camera. Embarking on this new chapter of independent film, The Future of Film Is Female presents a robust program of work that is as entertaining, poignant, and varied as the lives we lead. The Future of Film Is Female, Part 3 includes 10 feature films, by filmmakers including Channing Godfrey Peoples, Natalie Erika James, Amy Seimetz, and Alice Wu; each is paired with a short film, by directors including Sophy Romvari, Crystal Kayiza, Kana Hatakeyama, and Nikyatu Jusu.
The Future of Film Is Female is an organization that amplifies the work of all women filmmakers through its short film fund, a commitment to exhibition, and building community programs.
Virtual Cinema is not available to Annual Pass members or members outside of the US.
Organized by Caryn Coleman, guest curator, and co-organized with Rajendra Roy, The Celeste Bartos Chief Curator of Film, and Olivia Priedite, Senior Program Assistant, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art
