Free International Women’s Day Films at

Posted by in Art Threat, Doc Side

nfb_intlwomensdayThe beaten (by the Canadian Conservative budget cuts) but not down National Film Board of Canada is offering a treasure trove of titles for free streaming today, in celebration and recognition of International Women’s Day. Included in the bunch is the 2012 experimental short by Jenn Strom, below (after the jump), called ASSEMBLY. We’re not talking about a couple of films here, we’re talking dozens of amazing documentaries. The section also features a forward by Ravida Din, Director General of English Program, who discusses the NFB’s herstory with the women’s movement (which as Yasmin Jiwani’s excellent oped in today’s Montreal Gazette reminds us, is nowhere near over).
