March 15 at 7 p.m., The Film Institute at Montclair State University will present a program, “The Real Women of Film,” in which women working in the film industry will discuss their professional journeys with assistant professor of filmmaking Lise Raven.
Participants will include writer/director Deborah Goodwin (“Cherrys,” “Vampires in Venice,” “The Pastor”), editor Carla Gutierrez (“La Corona,” “Ella Es Matador”), producer/director/writer Deborah Kampmeier (“Virgin,” “Hounddog”)” and documentary producer/director Chiemi Karasawa (“The Betrayal,” “Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction,” “Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me”). Clips from the panelists’ films will be shown, and audience questions will be taken.
The event, at the Memorial Auditorium at Montclair State’s Life Hall, is part of the Film Institute’s free “Films and Filmmakers Series,” which is open to the general public as well as Montclair State students. For information, visit montclair.edu.
