Faculty Kate Kaminski
Kate Kaminski, Adjunct Instructor of Academic Studies, is founder and artistic director of the Bluestocking Film Series, recognized by Down East Magazine’s editors in their Best of Maine Culture section. The series was also mentioned in Ann Hornaday’s Summer Preview in The Washington Post, and Marie Claire magazine listed Bluestocking number two in “The Things We Love About July” in 2015. More recently, a curated selection of the Best of the Bluestocking Film Series played during the #SeeHerNow World Weekend of Women in Film in Stockholm and at the LadyBug Festival in Göteborg, both in Sweden.
“Bluestocking Film Series is an exclusive showcase for provocative, well-produced films that feature complex female protagonists driving the narrative and leading the action. The only film event in the world to require female protagonists, submissions must also pass the Bechdel-Wallace Test (see below for ‘the rules’).”
