Breaking the Celluloid Ceiling

To commemorate the 100th birthday of the legendary Ida Lupino, we will spend the year celebrating the achievements of women in film — both on and off screen. Our programming will highlight the crucial role women have played in both the history of Hollywood and of independent film.

Lupino appeared as an actress in numerous Hollywood films throughout the 40’s and 50’s — but it was her work behind-the-camera as a producer, writer, and director that marked her as a pioneer. She was fearless and tenacious in all facets of filmmaking and this series is dedicated to her.

All of the programs in this series will be denoted with the internationally-recognized F-Rating, which designates films that have major female participation behind the camera — as a director or screenwriter — or that feature strong female leads or women’s issues.
