It was with great pleasure that WIFV hosted a sold out screening of A League of Their Own directed by Penny Marshall at the Avalon Theatre on August 29 to celebrate the inclusion of the film in the National Film Registry at the Library of Congress!
Peter Freeman of DC Outook, a guide to staying busy in the nation’s capital, has recounted the experience through his article “Penny Marshall Charms Avalon Audience”. Read the article here.
WIFV has been coordinating a multi-year campaign to have more women-made films included in the National Film Registry. You can support the 2013 nominations here.
