Texas Tech, in conjunction with The Terry & Jo Harvey Allen Center for Creativity Studies, will host documentary screenings from all-female directors later this month.
In celebration of Women's History Month, The Terry & Jo Harvey Allen Center for Creativity Studies, part of University Outreach & Engagement in the Office of the Provost at Texas Tech University, will be hosting “3 Women 3 Films,” an event highlighting films produced and directed by female filmmakers.
The films will be screened from March 21 through March 24 at Premiere Cinemas in the South Plains Mall. The first three nights will include a film screening followed by a question-and-answer with the director, moderated by Texas Tech Public Media director, Paul Hunton. The final night will be a panel discussion with all three directors.
“To cap-off Women's History Month, we'll be hosting three brilliant women directors as they screen their new, and equally brilliant, documentary films,” said Andy Wilkinson, director of Outreach & Engagement at Texas Tech.
The event also boasts a collaboration with Texas Tech Public Media, well known for its own documentary work.
Lubbock has one of the best film communities in the state, so it's natural to have such a fantastic line-up of films and filmmakers,” Hunton said. “Terry and Jo Harvey Allen have done an incredible job putting together a line-up of exciting filmmakers with distinct visions and styles that should delight filmgoers. I look forward to exciting art and great conversation, it's going to be a wonderful opportunity for our community.”
