GAZE film series invites submissions of short moving image works of any genre exploring gendered oppression, bearing witness, survivorship, and modes of resistance for a curated screening to benefit the Bay Area Women Against Rape (BAWAR), where call volume and requested services rose dramatically alongside the Kavanaugh hearings and confirmation. In curating this social fundraiser, we hope to respond to the needs of our community by creating a space to process these current events through art, as well as rally and strategize next steps for collective action.
In partnership with Canyon Cinema and San Francisco Cinematheque, our program emphasizes how women-identified filmmakers historically shape the visual landscape around gendered violence, outrage, and resistance.
All formats are accepted, and there is no submission fee.
Deadline to submit: Sunday, October 28, 2018
