Dates announced for the 11th Women and the Silent Screen Conference

Women & Film History International and the Columbia School for the Arts have announced tentative dates for the 11th Women and the Silent Screen Conference. The conference, will likely be held June 2 – 6, 2021 at Columbia University in New York City with the topic Women, World Cinema, and Migration.

Screenings and events will be held in two new state-of-the-art theatres with 35mm archival projection–the Lenfest Center for the Arts in West Harlem and the Fort Lee Film Commission’s Barrymore Theatre across the river in New Jersey. Between 1910 and 1920, many workers in the new film industry lived in the New York boroughs and took the ferry from 125th Street across the Hudson to work in Ft. Lee.

Look out for the upcoming Call for Papers!
