When: Fri., Feb. 6, 8 p.m. 2015
Bay Area Women in Film and Media is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization that supports the endeavors of local female filmmakers through training, networking events, and online community support. On Friday, it will be partnering with First Friday Shorts at The New Parkway (474 24th St., Oakland) to offer a free showcase of short films made by local women. Among those in the lineup is Olya Dubatova’s I Live in a Photobooth, which reflects on society’s obsession with documentation. Also on the bill is Emily Fraser and Katherine Gorringe’s Lady Parts, a six-minute documentary on a Redwood City-based auto repair shop designed for women by a woman — which is also an accurate description of the event generally, though everyone is welcome.
