The Athena Film Festival will explore what makes a leader, examining the values women leaders share – vision, courage, resilience – and explore leadership across race, class, and culture.
The Festival will highlight the wide diversity of women’s leadership in both real life and the fictional world, illuminating the stories of women from across the globe who have made a difference in their countries and communities. Its goal is to open a robust dialogue about women and leadership: what it takes to excel, collaborate, lead, and inspire.
The Festival will showcase features, documentaries and shorts including The Whistleblower starring Rachel Weisz, Wish Me Away, the coming out journey of country singer Chely Wright, Black Butterflies starring Carice Van Houten, who won the best actress award at the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival, and HBO’s Gloria: In Her Own Words, a documentary about Gloria Steinem. The Lady starring Michelle Yeoh as Burmese activist Aung San Suu Kyi will serve as the closing film of the Festival.
