Eileen Fisher Launching Online Film Festival

Running March 1-31, the festival presents a collection of films by prominent independent filmmakers with a special focus on women.

FISHER AND FILM: Eileen Fisher, Inc. and the Independent Television Service’s Women and Girls Lead campaign will launch an online film festival, called #SheDocs, showcasing 10 documentaries highlighting extraordinary women and their accomplishments. The collaboration is timed to International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month in March.


Running March 1-31, the festival presents a collection of films by prominent independent filmmakers with a special focus on women working to transform their lives, communities and the world. All 10 films will be made available free online on the Women and Girls Lead Web site. The films will be supported by events both online and in communities across the country to inspire dialogue and a deeper connection with the films.


Fisher will co-present Community Cinema screenings of “Wonder Women! The Untold Story of American Superheroines” in seven cities in March (Chicago, Nashville, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington D.C.).


“The Women and Girls Lead campaign is one that we will believe will inspire and activate audiences to learn about the plight of women around the world,” said Eileen Fisher. “We are proud to sponsor #SheDocs to celebrate women’s contributions to society and to engage in conversations about what is possible when women and girls are center stage.”
