Alexandria Film Festival To Debut Virtually This Year

The Alexandria Film Festival will debut virtually this year Nov. 12-15. It announced on Tuesday its 2020 programming of 45 short and feature-length fiction and nonfiction films, representing every genre. Topics in the films range from family traditions and unsung artists to stories of survival and union organizing.

As per the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Anchoring the festival’s opening night and its 19th Amendment Centennial Celebration Showcase of films is “9 to 5: The Story of a Movement” by Oscar-winning filmmakers Julia Reichert and Steve Bognar. The documentary follows a group of office workers in the 1970s that organize a national movement for gender equality in the workplace. The movement inspired the 1980 Hollywood film “9 to 5” starring Jane Fonda, Dolly Parton, and Lily Tomlin. The 7 pm screening on Nov. 12 will be followed with a live Q&A with one of the principal subjects of the film, Debbie Schneider.”

According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Another standout feature of this year’s festival: women direct nearly half the films. “As our nation celebrates the 19th amendment guaranteeing women’s right to vote, we are honoring this milestone of equality by featuring a number of films by women and about women,” said Wohler. “One goal of the festival is to give underrepresented voices in the film world the opportunity to be heard.”
