Hello Seattle and SIFF!!!

The WONDER WOMEN! team is back together for the Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF). We’re ecstatic to be here, especially since Seattle is the home of both Jen Stuller, author of the fantastic book “Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology,” and the nonprofit Reel Grrls. Both are featured in WONDER WOMEN!

The film will be screening three times during SIFF:

Saturday, May 26, 3:30 p.m. at the Everett Performing Arts Center

Sunday, May 27, 4 p.m. at the Egyptian Theatre

Monday, May 28, 6 p.m. at the Harvard Exit

SIFF has posted information on its website about obtaining tickets.

We’re also part of an amazing panel “Titled “Sheroes in Media: Women and Girls Changing the Game” on Saturday, May 26, 7:30 p.m. at the SIFF Film Center. It is free and open to the public.

Kristy Guevara-Flanagan: Director, WONDER WOMEN!; Jen Stuller, who is also programming Director for GeekGirlCon; Daniel Tayara: Reel Grrls youth filmmaker; Megan Gaiser, Her Interactive and Marta Smith, IGNITE: Inspiring Girls Now In The Technology Evolution, will discuss how women, both real and fictional, are represented in American culture.

Who influences and controls the media messages we receive about strong women – and how are they internalized by consumers?

Can’t make the panel? No worries, we’ll be tweeting from it live over at @wonderwomandoc, hashtag #sheroesSIFF.
