The fabulous team at AWFJ (Alliance of Women Film Journalists) have announced a partnership with Kino Lorber to bring you a series of specially curated femme-helmed films. When you purchase a pass for AWFJ Presents Outstanding Films by Women, you’ll gain access to six fantastic movies paired with conversations from AWFJ’s curation team—which means you’ll get lots of film goodness AND fresh insight! The AWFJ is made up of leading women film critics and writers who work to celebrate and uplift women’s voices and creations in film, so you know they’re here to bring you sharp and profound commentary on each feature.
Kino Marquee is a new initiative that brings the cinema to you—when you buy a ticket, your money is shared between distributor and exhibitor so you can support all the temporarily closed independent theaters while enjoying each movie from the comfort of your couch. How cool is that? Grab a pass, pop some popcorn, and raise a glass to all these femme-powered films!
