RiverRun International Film Festival has partnered with Independent Television Service (ITVS) to bring free documentary screenings to the Winston-Salem community through the ITVS Community Cinema series. Salem College was selected to host three events in its new 90-seat Huber Theater at the student center.
MAKERS, a series of documentaries about women leaders in America, is an appropriate choice for Salem– an institution that has been educating women for more than 240 years. Three installations of the series are offered free of charge to the Winston-Salem community before they air on public television:
Women in Comedy | October 13, 2014 | 8:00 p.m.
Women in Space | October 21, 2014 | 8:00 p.m.
Women in Hollywood | October 28, 2014 | 8:00 p.m.
The last screening to be held at Salem will begin with a 7:00 p.m. reception, hosted by President Lorraine Sterritt. Women in Hollywood features acclaimed show business trailblazers Jane Fonda, Shonda Rhimes, Linda Woolverton, Lena Dunham, and Glenn Close. After the screening, a brief Q&A session will be held with Susan Ruskin, Dean of Filmmaking at UNC School of the Arts, and Lauren Vilchik, Producing Instructor.
