EVERETT WOMEN’S FILM FESTIVAL ANCHORS PERFECT GIRLFRIENDS’ WEEKEND GETAWAY
Looking for a place to get away with your gal pals that includes a few things to enrich the mind as well as the soul, the tummy and the wardrobe? You’ll find it in Everett, Washington, home to several popular woman-owned fashion boutiques, a diversity of wine and dining experiences – and an annual film festival that showcases powerful, unusual, and always memorable women-made films.
It’s the Everett Women’s Film Festival on February 27 and 28. Since 1997, the Everett Women’s Film Festival (EWFF) has honored the spirit, drive, creativity, and diversity of women filmmakers as they explore human issues and conditions through feature film, documentaries, comedies, shorts, and animation.
The festival focuses on high quality and eclectic thematic content, giving it a quirky yet balanced flavor. Each film leaves a lasting impression on the audience.
Among the 2010 film line-up are:
Frozen River by Courtney Hunt (United States/2008) Desperation knows no borders in this character study of two women – one white, the other Mohawk – on opposite sides of the reservation.
Mostly Martha by Sandra Nettlebeck (Germany/2001) A little bit French, a little bit Italian, a little obsession and lots of food. Set in a busy upscale restaurant with humor and drama to spare.
Clotheslines by Roberta Cantow (USA/1988) With verve and humor, this film shows the love/hate relationship that women have with the task of cleaning the family's clothes.
The Everett Women’s Film Festival takes place at the Everett Performing Arts Center, 2710 Wetmore Ave.
