POWMonthly is a series dedicated to showcasing films directed by women. It provides year-round visibility to the wide range of high quality, thought-provoking films women create, and often gives audiences an opportunity interact with the filmmakers. By doing so, POWMonthly supports the careers and leadership of women in film.

Screenings take place on the fourth Monday of every month at Clinton Street Theater and proceeds fund POWFest’s efforts to increase the number of women in leadership roles in media by providing resources, education and visibility.
