If you’re anywhere near Fort Lee, New Jersey in March – particularly on Wednesdays – you might want to visit the Fort Lee Public Library where cinema pioneers will get their due.
Thanks to the Fort Lee Film Commission and the Fort Lee Public Library those in the area will get the opportunity to celebrate Women’s History Month with women filmmakers of note spanning the entire history of cinema. The Reel Jersey Girls Film Festival will rely heavily on work produced in Fort Lee to include the work of Alice Guy Blache’, Pearl White and Madge Kennedy. The program will conclude on March 22nd with the screening of a 2016 documentary directed by Michelle Yu.
Admission to all of the screenings is free. The following poster has all the necessary details. I want to congratulate my friends at the Fort Lee Film Commission and the Fort Lee Public Library for producing this fabulous festival. I’ll do my best to spread the word. Any and all time spent with these folks and their infectious love of movies is always a special treat.

I grew up in Fort Lee…in the Post Office there were murals depictying the history of the film industry and all over town there were old building that had once been a major part of the industry in thew very early days…my bud, Tom Meyers, is part of the Fort Lee Film Society that preserves the history of those early days…
Nice! I know Tom. Great guy and I love that he does all he does for film history.
