A virtual event honoring women in film and promoting pay equality, education and opportunity will be hosted by the Cinema/Chicago Associate Board and the Women Employed Advocacy Council.
The screening will take place at 7 p.m. March 31 -- the second Wednesday of Women's History Month 2021 -- at the Chicago International Film Festival (Cinemas/Chicago, 201 W. Randolph Ave). A virtual debate with the all-female directors' panel will accompany the screening of four short films.
Proceeds from the event will help Chicagoans and Chicago Public Schools students who want to go to the movies, as well as opportunities for working people.
The Chicago International Film Festival's presenting company is Cinema/Chicago.
The festival is a non-profit cultural and educational organization that runs all year long with the aim of improving contact between people of different cultures through the art of film and the moving picture.
Raffle tickets can be purchased for a chance to win a $550 prize package titled "Social Justice + Self Care from Home."
