Feminist March 2020 poster by Ona Zelda Pitschka

In honor of Women’s History Month, the Hollywood Theatre spends this March celebrating the women who have shaped the film industry, both in front of and behind the camera.

The Hollywood’s Anthony Hudson, Alison Hallett, and Destynee Norwood invited Hollywood Signature Series programmers and community partners like Books with Pictures, Rock 'N' Roll Camp for Girls, the Cascade Festival of African Films, the Harriet Tubman Center for Expanded Curatorial Practice, and more to share films that influence and inspire them. The resulting lineup spans genres, eras, and sensibilities, and share only one thing in common: they tell women’s stories.

The goal of Feminist March is to celebrate the contributions that women have made, and continue to make, to the film industry, while acknowledging the ongoing need for intersectional advocacy on behalf of marginalized voices, specifically trans and nonbinary filmmakers and filmmakers of color.

Original poster art for Feminist March was created by Ona Zelda Pitschka. Screenprinted posters will be available at Movie Madness and the Hollywood for $15.

Addressing contemporary concerns about gender and identity, the film is remarkably true to the spirit of Virginia Woolf, but it also skilfully adapts the original story to give it a striking, cinematic form. The screenplay is a standard text taught in film schools as a radic…
