"Coming Up Short" Women's Film Festival
New York City, April 10, 2005

We're almost out of tickets for "Coming Up Short: Films By Women Filmmakers." On April 10th, celebrate Women's History Month at the Pioneer Theater in NYC and walk away with a gift bag full of prizes from our sponsors worth over $50. Films include:STILL DOING IT: THE INTIMATE LIVES OF WOMEN OVER 65
Director: Deirdre Fishel
Flying in the face of this culture’s extreme ageism, Still Doing It explores the lives of older women. Partnered, single, straight, gay, black, and white; nine extraordinary women, ages 67 – 87, express with startling honesty how they feel about themselves, sex and love in later life and the poignant realities of aging. Outspoken for their generation, these women mark a sea of change. Women over 65 are already the fastest growing segment of the population, and when the baby boomers begin to turn 65 in 2011, their numbers will swell. Still Doing It follows the lives of these women as well as this society’s complex relationship to aging with surprising and revelatory results.

Director: Anne Cremieux
Ladyfesto was shot during Ladyfest Philly, a women’s arts festival, in March 2003. The main organizers are interviewed as well as artists and attendees. They talk about the war in Iraq that broke out when the festival started, feminism, arts and crafts, consensus-based organizing, inclusion, and the sisterly city of Philadelphia. Both an account of the festival and a guide to DIY political and artistic organizing, Ladyfesto is both compelling and fun to watch.

Cheer Up! documents the vibrant movement of radical cheerleading at one of its most exciting moments during the radical pro-choice cheerbloc
contingent to the April 25, 2004 March for Women’s Lives in Washington D.C. The video looks at the growing movement of Radical Cheerleading, its roots and its future and the means by which it organizes. The video is a landmark for the Radical Cheerleading movement which up until now has been poorly documented from within the movement itself and mostly covered by corporate and male-dominated media groups.
