Pioneers in Skirts Nevada Theatrical Premiere picked as pre-conference workshop: The winner of the Best Documentary for Change at the 2021 Paris International Film Festival, Pioneers in Skirts is an entertaining and relatable film about the obstacles that get in the way of pioneering ambition.
The film addresses the stereotyping and sexism that can chip away at a woman, hurt her potential, and make her feel like she must re-think her dreams.
In an inspiring portrait of perseverance and determination, Pioneers in Skirts filmmakers Ashley Maria and Lea-Ann Berst follow the journeys of 3 unforgettable girls on a robotics team, their fathers, and Lily, a young mother who is in line for a promotion. Using Ashley’s own story as a female director in Hollywood as the through line – they speak with fellow pioneering women and topic experts who have solutions to share.
Released during the pandemic and screened online all over the world in schools, companies and communities – including ACTE – this event is a precursor to the filmmakers’ December 1 workshop – Fostering Meaningful Discussion – An Educator’s Guide.
