From the website:
Bluestocking celebrates and promotes talented, established and emerging filmmakers who take the creative risk of placing female protagonists front and center, and serves as a showcase to amplify female voices and stories. Bluestocking was the first all-narrative festival in the world to require films with female protagonist and Bechdel-Wallace Test compliance. The Bechdel-Wallace Test measures representation and dialogue of female characters in film.
Bluestocking Film Series is nothing short of genius — a beacon in the storm of gender inequity in Hollywood. The program truly casts a rare light illuminating a better future when women's voices are no longer censored and silenced in American storytelling. It is just this sort of inspired foresight that could result in the inclusion of women in the voice of our civilization — at last.
—Maria Giese, film director, founder of Women Directors: Navigating the Hollywood Boys Club
