We’re thrilled to be a part of a range of virtual screenings that are bringing new and innovative programming and resources to homes in this challenging time. It’s been amazing to connect with new communities and viewers, as well as passionate educators and students who are learning from home- and to share our shorts in a new format, while our public screening events are put on hold.
We hope you can join us on these upcoming virtual screenings!
We’re looking forward to a special virtual screening and panel event tonight, Thursday, May 21, at 7:30 pm ET with Project Scientist, a non-profit organization that encourages girls and young women to pursue STEM. We’ll be screening two of our shorts – on Williamina Fleming, trailblazing astronomer and discoverer of stars, and on pioneering botanist Ynes Mexia.
Following the screenings, there will be a Q&A with amazing scientists featured in these films: ethnobotanist Ina Vandebroek, assistant curator and program director at the New York Botanical Garden, and astronomer Wendy Freedman, best known for her measurement of the Hubble constant, as well as UNLADYLIKE2020’s series creator, director, and producer Charlotte Mangin.
Register for tonight’s screening event here, and check out Project Scientists’ website and programs here!
On June 4th at 7 pm ET, the National Women’s History Alliance will be hosting a virtual discussion with UNLADYLIKE2020 series creator Charlotte Mangin- Charlotte will be sharing highlights from the women’s stories featured in the series, and her experience developing the series’ unique approach to historical storytelling, and take questions from viewers joining from home. Learn more and register here!
We loved being a part of the virtual screening series #StayHomeWatchTogether, a global initiative featuring documentary films, panel discussions and audience Q&A’s. On April 16th, five UNLADYLIKE2020 shorts were screened, followed by a discussion with Charlotte Mangin and UNLADYLIKE2020’s Impact Producer Kathy Leichter, moderated by UNLADYLIKE2020’s Impact Operations Producer Alice Quinlin. You can watch a replay of the discussion here!
We’re looking forward to being a part of more exciting and creative virtual screenings, to meeting and hear from new viewers, and are so grateful for our wonderful partnerships for helping to bring audiences and organizations together in this time, and inspiring stories into homes.
We’ll continue to be posting about these screenings and more here and on our social media – @UNLADYLIKE2020 !
