This Sundance Film Festival favorite is an honest, raw and affecting study of female adolescence and unreciprocated longing for both sexual and emotional attention. With a fantastic performance from newcomer Gina Piersanti, It Felt Like Love follows an inexperienced teen on the cusp of her sexual awakening, who is hanging out with her overtly sexual best friend and living with an emotionally distant father. *Cosponsored by Women's Resource Center

Another Sundance Film Festival favorite, this film is a daring work that explores the effects of grief and how recovery can be found in unusual situations.

With its lyrical dialogue and compelling symbolism, The Truth About Emanuel stays with you long after you leave the theatre. Cosponsored by the Women's Resource Center
