Virtual 7th Annual Women's Film Series
The BDC’s annual Women's Film Series returns for its 7th year! This year we have curated the festival to feature a selection of films exploring the enormous impact individuals have on societal issues. Among the topics to be discussed is the awareness of the biases in our society, conscious and unconscious, and how to bring about meaningful, life-altering change.
Join us for virtual conversations as we get to know the women filmmakers who are bringing these stories to the forefront and hear them discuss the stories behind their filmmaking careers.

Virtual Discussion | Through the Night
Virtual Q&A and discussion with co-director Loira Limbal. Through the Night is an intimate cinema verité portrait of three working mothers whose lives all intersect at a 24-hour daycare center: a mother working the overnight shift as an essential worker at a hospital; another holding down three jobs just to support her family; and a woman who for over two decades has cared for the children of parents with nowhere else to turn.
