Over the course of three days, 51 films, various workshops, informative industry panels, dynamic parties, and live music coalesce to form the fourth annual Lady Filmmakers Film Festival. The festival both celebrates women’s contributions to the independent-movie industry and raises awareness about pertinent social issues facing women around the world. Participants can immerse themselves in films such as Bryce Dallas Howard’s When You Find Me and Olivia Wilde’s Free Hugs, and get cultured about being cultured in seminars on topics such as casting and producing scripts written entirely in Klingon. On the last day of the festival, the producers will bestow cinematographer Amy Vincent with the 2012 Moving Image Award, honoring her achievements in shooting films such as Hustle & Flow and Black Snake Moan. After spending the day learning and viewing films, guests can mingle at parties replete with hors d'oeuvres and live music; wine will be served on Friday and Saturday, and champagne will be added on Sunday.
