World Premiere. A love letter to punk rock and the grrrls who made it, Rebel Girls is a raunchy comedy following two best friends who play hooky from work to go to the concert of their dreams. They next day they are promptly fired and must spend the next 24 hours trying anything and everything to pay rent on time to avoid eviction. Both films were produced by Film Wives Productions—the passion project of IU alumnae filmmakers Katherine Crump and Riley Dismore. These two boss ladies met while attending IU and instantly clicked, realizing their shared passion for women in cinema and their common story-telling and visual styles. Since then, they have worked to make a space for women in film. Contains mature content, including sexual situations.
Running the Screen: Directed by Women is a month-long film screening, public conversation, and masterclass series celebrating and affirming the pioneering contributions of women to the art of filmmaking. IU Cinema has dedicated its entire September 2019 programming line-up to films directed by women in celebration of September as Woman Director Awareness Month.
