Opening Gala

The 27th annual Women’s Film Festival Gala is here and it’s time for a Revolution!

In honor of our exciting opening night film, Left on Pearl, our gala theme this year is revolution. Dress up as your favorite activist, be inspired by a revolutionary time period, or just rebel against patriarchal clothing standards by being your most glamorous, comfortable self!

Kicking off the Women’s Film Festival, the Gala begins with a reception of champagne, wine & hors-d’oeuvres, followed by a screening of Left on Pearl. This inspiring documentary highlights a significant event in the women’s movement, when hundreds of Boston area women took over a Harvard-owned building to demand a Women’s Center and low-income housing for the community being displaced by the expanding university. More information is here.

Tickets for the gala are $30 and are being sold now. All proceeds benefit the important work of the Women’s Freedom Center.
