13th Annual WOC Film and Arts Fest:
The theme of this year's Women of Color Film Festival, Regenerations, draws inspiration from the number 13 in the Mayan calendar, which symbolizes transformation, movement, and change. This event builds upon the tremendous history established by previous film festivals to bring emerging and well-established filmmakers, artists, media activists and community members to our campus. As the longest running festival of its kind, the UCSC Women of Color Film and Video Festival has sparked dialogue across communities - locally, nationally, and trans-nationally - by providing a platform for critical explorations at the intersections of race, nation, class, gender, ethnicity, and sexuality.
