The Davis Feminist Film Festival will showcase the works of regional and international filmmakers on Thursday and Friday at the Veterans’ Memorial Theater, 203 E. 14th St. This year’s festival is dedicated to the late Ann Murray Paige, a filmmaker and Davis resident who served on the festival’s advisory board. Her documentary, “The Breast Cancer Diaries,” was featured in the 2010 program.
The festival is free and open to the public. There is a suggested donation of $10 general and $5 for students at the door. For more information, visit femfilmfest.ucdavis.edu.
Thursday’s program kicks off at 7 p.m., featuring the works of local filmmakers. Friday’s festival will begin at 6 p.m. and showcase international filmmakers.
Heather Caswell, a local multimedia artist and owner of The Wardrobe, has put together a special tribute to Paige, who died last month. It will premiere Thursday and also will screen Friday. It can be seen online at www.youtube.com/user/TheWardrobeBoutique.
Paige’s legacy, Project Pink, aims to continue creating awareness and support for young women with breast cancer. Supporters plan to continue to offer free distribution of her books to cancer patients. Project Pink also hosts an annual 5K run in October to fund these pursuits.
Project Pink, founded by Paige and Linda Pattillo, offers help and hope to young women with breast cancer. It began with the acclaimed documentary, “The Breast Cancer Diaries.”
