8th Annual Women’s International Film and Arts Festival Kick-Off

Women’s International Film and Arts FestivalWednesday, March 20, 6pm – Knight Concert Hall at Adrienne Arsht Center, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami

Join Jada Pinkett-Smith as she kicks off the 8th Annual Women’s International Film & Arts Festival with a red carpet Florida Premiere presentation of her documentary film “Free Angela and All Political Prisoners.” It will be the only opportunity to see the film in a Florida theater as this film will only be playing in seven other select cities nationwide. This Opening Night screening is such a rare treat with Mrs. Jada Pinkett Smith.  “Free Angela” tells the dramatic story of how a young professor’s social justice activism implicates her in a botched kidnapping attempt that ends with a bloody shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list. In this historical vérité style documentary, marking the 40th anniversary of her acquittal on charges of murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy, Angela Davis recounts the politics and actions that branded her a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide movement for her freedom as a political prisoner.  Proceeds from the event will benefit WIFF’s “Reel Girls: Real Women” media literacy and film-making program for girls-at-risk. General Admission is $20 and VIP tickets are $100.
