FILM | "Makers: Women in Hollywood" 

In honor of Women's History Month, the Rochester Media Association will sponsor a screening of "Makers: Women in Hollywood" and a talkback event on Thursday, March 10, at 6 p.m., at The Little Theatre (240 East Avenue). Linda Goldstein Knowlton's documentary shines a much-needed spotlight on the contributions of women in show business, from the "earliest pioneers to present-day power players," and features interviews with artists like Jane Fonda, Shonda Rhimes, screenwriter Linda Woolverton (Disney's "Beauty and the Best," "Maleficent"), Lena Dunham, Geena Davis, and Glenn Close, discussing their experiences carving out successful careers in the entertainment industry.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A featuring local women leaders in media and entertainment. Tickets are $10 ($7 for members of participating sponsoring organizations and $5 for students). Note: tickets to this event will not be sold at The Little box office, and can only be purchased online at prsarochester.org.
