Here's to Her!

Series | Celebrating & uplifting femmes in film

Here’s to Her! is an ongoing series at the American Cinematheque showcasing femme filmmakers in unique and interesting ways, while also facilitating dialogue and discussion around the craft of filmmaking and the industry at large. Through weekend tributes, feature film debut premieres, conversations between veteran and emerging filmmakers, and much more, Here’s to Her! aims to facilitate more discovery around women and femme workers in film. We celebrate pioneers while also spotlighting new talent.

ABOUT THE CURRENT SERIES:

The American Cinematheque is proud to pay tribute to filmmaker and author Amanda Kramer. An artist with a knack for hypnotic and daring onscreen visuals, she has been named one of Indiewire’s 2019 “Directors Who Will Define the Next Decade,” alongside Chloe Zhao, Greta Gerwig, and Ari Aster.

Kramer’s short films BARK, INTERVENE, and SIN ULTRA have played at Fantastic Fest, Chicago Underground Film Festival and Boston Underground Film Festival’s Dispatches from the Underground. Her screenplays have been accepted into IFP’s Emerging Filmmakers program and Frontierés International Co-Production Market in Brussels. Kramer’s music videos have premiered on Vogue, LA Record, Flaunt Magazine, and Complex.

Her feature film PARIS WINDOW opened the Women Texas Film Festival and won the jury prize for Creative Vision at the DTLA Film Festival. Her feature film LADYWORLD was selected for the Frontierés Buyers Showcase at the Marche du Film at Cannes. The film had its US Premiere at Fantastic Fest (’18) and its International Premiere at London BFI Film Festival. LADYWORLD also showed at Denver International Film Festival, SF Indie Fest, TIFF Next Wave, Seoul International Women’s Film Festival, and Sydney Film Fest.  LADYWORLD had its theatrical and streaming release in August 2019. The film will be re-released by Yellow Veil Pictures in 2023.

Her film PLEASE BABY PLEASE (starring Andrea Riseborough and Harry Melling) opened the 2022 International Film Festival at Rotterdam, headlining a filmmaker focus section that included all of her past work, as well as the premiere of her one-woman spectacular feature, GIVE ME PITY!.

Her next film, TRAUM, is a femme-hysteria thriller that will star Andrea Riseborough as a Holocaust survivor falling into radical group therapy and environmental terrorism in the 70s American midwest.
