Honoree Celeste Bateman described the Women’s History Month Film Festival saying, “The response to our festival over the years has been tremendous. People of all genders, ethnic and cultural backgrounds want to hear good stories by and about women. This is the mission of this organization, to tell those stories – some inspiring, some heartwarming, some heartbreaking and some empowering – and to support the works of these extraordinary storytellers, women filmmakers from around the world.”
