A Global Cavalcade of Animated Shorts #DirectedbyWomen will take place in Bloomington, Indiana as part of the 4th Annual #DirectedbyWomen Worldwide Film Viewing Party, which brings the global film community together for a film-viewing party appreciating an incredible diversity of films throughout the month of September. During the Worldwide Film Viewing Party, film lovers will gather together in their communities around the world for film screenings and guest filmmaker visits—all designed to focus attention on women film directors and their work. Film lovers everywhere are invited to co-create the Worldwide Film Viewing Party by creating their own events—large or small.

A Global Cavalcade of Animated Shorts #DirectedbyWomen screening is FREE, open to the public and will be held at The Indiana University Libraries Screening Room—a beautiful, intimate venue with great projection and sound.

Curated by filmmaker Laura Ivins and Barbara Ann O'Leary, catalyst behind the #DirectedbyWomen initiative.
