Join Women in Film.Dallas and take a journey into the life of the first female filmmaker. Alice Guy-Blaché was a filmmaker before the word even existed. She directed films for 11 years in France under the famed production company Gaumont. In 1907, she came to America and was producing films before there was a Hollywood.
Alice Guy-Blaché was not only the world's first female director, but in 1896, she became the first of either sex to direct a fictional film.
After directing, producing, and/or writing more than 700 films, her name slipped into oblivion. Find out how she did it, and why you’ve never heard her name.
Come out for a fitting tribute to one of cinema’s most fearless pioneers.
We will be giving away 3 door prizes, sponsored by KD Studio. A copy of The Memoirs of Alice Guy-Blaché
, which includes a complete filmography. This book provides an original, first-hand view of the potential that motion pictures offered women from the Victorian era, and how, ultimately, the industry rejected one of its first and most important pioneers.
Please join us for this special night of learning about the first female filmmaker, and an informative panel after the film.
