    Language of Light

    Communicating with Cinematographers



    Join Film Fatales for a discussion about the Language of Light with Nancy Schreiber (P-Valley), Rose Bush (Colette), and Vatsala Goel (Aggie). Moderated by Film Fatales member Chithra Jeyaram (Foreign Puzzle).

    Come hear from working cinematographers who are forging a path with their uniquely creative visions. Learn where they find inspiration, how they cultivate their style, and how they maintain it in the fast-paced and ever-changing landscape of the film industry. Do bold choices help you stand out or are they something you have to fight to hold onto? How do you maintain your artistic integrity? How do cinematographers like to communicate with directors?

    This event is open to the public and will be accessible with live captioning. The registration link will be shared the day of the event and a video replay link will be available for 48 hours after.  Enjoy!

Tickets and all-access passes are available to anyone in the United States as of today on reprofilmfest.com.

    The 2021 lineup of films and conversations includes three feature films and twelve short films that explore a range of topics including equal access to abortion, criminalization of bodily autonomy, gender stereotyping, reproductive health concerns, postpartum depression, reproductive justice for women of color, among others.

    Individual tickets will have screening windows and will be available for $10 each; all-access passes ($75 each) will include the added benefit of on-demand access for all films playing at the festival. Both tickets and passes are on sale as of today, July 21st, online at reprofilmfest.com. Films are available to audiences across the US. In 2020, the inaugural rePRO Film Fest was enjoyed by audience members from twenty nine states.

    All proceeds are donated to their three Beneficiary Orgs fighting for reproductive rights:  Black Women's Health Imperative, Lilith Fund, and No More Secrets. 

    The 2021 festival is presented in part by Bloomberg Philanthropies, Stober Lafer Foundation, Sheppard Foundation, the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund and Pam Schafler.

    celebrate the diversity of our world through independent films that educate, enrich and engage audiences.

    Named as "Up and Coming Film Fest" by New Hampshire Magazine, the Monadnock International Film Festival (MONIFF) showcases high quality independent cinema every April for three days in the beautiful Monadnock Region, known for its vibrant arts culture and Mt. Monadnock, one of the world's most climbed mountains. MONIFF features award-winning films on the festival circuit, both domestic and foreign, along with premieres of regionally produced films by New Hampshire and New England filmmakers. The highlight of the festival every year is the presentation of the Jonathan Daniels Award, given to a filmmaker whose work fuses social and/or political awareness with artistic excellence, and encompasses Jonathan Daniels courage by telling stories of hope, redemption, and the triumph of the human spirit.

    The MONIFF vision is to offer a year-round cultural resource for the Monadnock Region through our annual film festival, community film screenings and our Screenwriting In Schools program that we offer to high school students.
