The 3rd annual Kartemquin Spring Showcase invites you to enjoy exclusive previews of never-before-seen footage from four of our upcoming documentaries, and give your feedback directly to the filmmakers in the theater and in a post-screening reception. Serving as both a window into our process and an opportunity to impact the future of these works-in-progress, this event embodies the Kartemquin spirit of collaborative creation and meaningful audience engagement.
This strong statement opens the new In the Game demo, released today via YouTube. Producer/Director Maria Finitzo's film takes on the legacy of Title IX, stating "in our country, who gets to play and who does not is a yardstick by which we measure how close we are to achieving the goals of a democracy."
On May 19 in Chicago a sneak preview of Kartemquin's in-progress film In the Game will accompany a panel discussion on equality and womens athletics: Women in Sports: The Legacy of Title IX. The event is being organized by the Young Women's Leadership Council of the Chicago Foundation for Women and will take place at Columbia College in Chicago.
