Newport Beach Film Festival gets some Rewrite Beautiful!
Rewrite Beautiful is stoked to announce that we are a partner charity of the 2011 Newport Beach Film Festival! We have joined forces with the directors of some amazing documentaries and films that will be shown at the festival, all centered around girls and women’s issues. The amazing line-up is:
Get Real! Wise Women Speak! Get Real! Wise Women Speak features extraordinary women including, Jane Fonda, Nikki Giovanni, Della Reese, Marianne Williamson, Susan L. Taylor, Jody Williams, indigenous elders and others who speak about their journey to the wise woman years and the inner fire that propels them to make the most of their wisdom and experience as they glean from age a greater sense of their own meaning, worth, beauty and connection to the larger world.
Miss Representation - Like drawing back a curtain to let bright light stream in, -i-Miss Representation-/i- uncovers a glaring reality we live with every day but fail to see. It’s clear the mainstream media objectifies women, but what most people don’t realize is the magnitude of that phenomenon and the way objectification gets internalized—a symbolic annihilation of self-worth—and impedes girls and women from realizing their full potential. While women have made strides in leadership over the past few decades, trivializing and damaging images continue to proliferate.
We will be speaking to the audiences before the films roll about ways they can get involved with their local non-profit Rewrite Beautiful and change the lives of women right here inOrangeCounty. We will be telling everyone about our upcoming Street Art Workshops and the Art Show we’re hosting the end of July at FIND Magazine and Art Gallery!
We are so honored to join forces for good with the Newport Beach Film Festival! You can too! Don’t miss out! Get your tickets to these shows by clicking the links below the images and come say “Hey Beautiful!”
