Flicker Alley Giveaway: Enter to Win Early Women Filmmakers: An International Anthology

Flicker Alley has been doing some terrific classic film releases, such as last year's TOO LATE FOR TEARS (1949) and WOMAN ON THE RUN (1950), which were beautiful prints with numerous extras.

Along with a number of other film bloggers, I'm happy to be cohosting a giveaway for the newest Flicker Alley release, EARLY WOMEN FILMMAKERS: AN INTERNATIONAL ANTHOLOGY, coming out this week in a dual-format Blu-ray/DVD set.

Here's more information on the EARLY WOMEN FILMMAKERS: AN INTERNATIONAL ANTHOLOGY set from Flicker Alley:

On May 9th, Flicker Alley presents Early Women Filmmakers: An International Anthology on Dual-Format Edition Blu-ray/DVD, showcasing the work of 14 of early cinema's most innovative and influential women directors, re-writing and celebrating their rightful place in film history.

International in scope, this groundbreaking collection features over 10 hours of material, comprised of 25 films spanning 1902-1943, including many rare titles not widely available until now, from shorts to feature films, live-action to animation, commercial narratives to experimental works. Directors include Alice Guy Blaché, Lois Weber, Mabel Normand, Madeline Brandeis, Germaine Dulac, Olga Preobrazhenskaia, Marie-Louise Iribe, Lotte Reiniger, Claire Parker, Mrs. Wallace Reid (Dorothy Davenport), Leni Riefenstahl, Mary Ellen Bute, Dorothy Arzner, and Maya Deren.

These women were technically and stylistically innovative, pushing the boundaries of narrative, aesthetics, and genre. Going back to the beginning of cinema, this collection makes visible the tremendous directorial contributions women made all around the world. Beautifully restored in high definition, Early Women Filmmakers features new scores by Sergei Dreznin, Frederick Hodges, Tamar Muskal, Judith Rosenberg, and Rodney Sauer and the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra.

Bonus Materials Include:

*Booklet Essay by film scholar and Women Film Pioneers Project Manager Kate Saccone.
