THE STATE OF THINGS

 

Does Hollywood influence and/or teach us how and what to think about ourselves and other cultures? How do Indie filmmakers address the issues of race and identity through storytelling?

ENE takes a hard look at the identity crisis in America, and what it means to be an American and how movies in general shape our society.

WOMEN IN COMEDY



This panel takes a look at the history of women in comedy. Primarily dominated by men, women's comedy was originally tailored to what men would find funny and non-threatening. Early acts were often based on the standard roles of housewife and mother. Over the year, women have made significant gains in television, film and stand-up. We now see how comedy plays an important role in the feminist movement by allowing women's issues to be more wide-spread in society.

TO SCORE, OR NOT TO SCORE

It can be as sweeping and moving, like an ethereal landscape. Ephemeral or minimal, like the banging of a wooden spoon. When the balance is struck, it can inspire us to move mountains, or make us ponder the years that have passed us by. Enter the world of the film composer.
