Robinson Film Center has announced a full slate of programming to celebrate Women’s History Month. RFC will premiere several films focused on women and women’s issues, as well as its inaugural Women in the Reel World round table discussion.

The month kicks off with Nyad, the true story of athlete Diana Nyad who, at the age of 60, commits to achieving her life-long dream: a 110-mile open ocean swim from Cuba to Florida. Annette Benning and Jodie Foster both earned Oscar nominations for their performances in this film. On March 8th, RFC will premiere The Taste of Things, the critically acclaimed romance starring Juliette Binoche. On March 9th, RFC will also host a screening of Fitting In, which follows a 16-year-old who is unexpectedly diagnosed with a reproductive condition, MRKH syndrome. The diagnosis upends her presumptions about womanhood and sexuality, her relationship with her mother, and most importantly, herself. Other films on the slate include Cabrini and Love Lies Bleeding.

 “We are extremely excited about what we have programmed for this month, and we think these films will showcase multiple dimensions of womanhood,” said Rachael Hansil, Education Director of Robinson Film Center. “In addition to the films, we will be hosting the Women in the Reel World symposium on March 9th at 10:30 am, which includes breakfast and a discussion on the roles of women in film, on the screen and off.” The morning will feature a talk with Atlanta based filmmaker and actress Meosha Bean followed by a roundtable discussion with Meosha, actress and musician Jennifer Carsillo, and representatives from Centenary Film Society, which is sponsoring the event.
