Cancelled! Our Time: Celebrating Women
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment securing Women’s Right to Vote (1920 – 2020). Join us for a film and cultural arts festival on Friday, 3/27 and Saturday, 3/28 at the Corazon Cinema and Café (36 Granada Street, St. Augustine, FL) as we honor outstanding local female heroes, experience extraordinary films, hear thought-provoking speakers and open our imaginations through arts, fashion and history.
Friday, the festivities begin at 6pm for All-Access passholders, who will enjoy our feature film, “Fly Like a Girl” and meet the film’s director and producer along with our extraordinary local female heroes during a reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres.
We begin Saturday with more great films and a fashion show sponsored by The Way We Were, featuring fashions and corresponding film clips from the last century and will end with an Awards show for those films submitted independently. Many film producers and directors will be in attendance to answer questions after their films. Saturday’s jam-packed schedule will also include performances and discussions with experts on women’s issues, history and changing roles through the years. Many of these presentations will be supplemented with interesting, rarely seen film clips.
This event is open to everyone who is interested in great films, arts, and learning. Come and help us celebrate women while we inspire a new generation of leaders.
This event is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant, in partnership with the Friends of the Corazon.
