Mon, Jan 21, 2019 4:30pm to 8:00pm
Duffy Science Centre - 135

Telefilm Canada, UPEI Campus Life, and Robertson Library are presenting the award-winning movie Play Your Gender. The documentary, by Nova Scotia-based filmmaker Stephanie Clattenburg, is about the under-representation of women in the music industry.

“Only 6 women have ever been nominated for a Producer of the Year Grammy and no woman has ever won. In PLAY YOUR GENDER, Juno award-winning producer Kinnie Starr is on a quest to find out why this disparity exists by speaking to industry stars and veterans about the realities of being a woman in the recording studio.

Play Your Gender features interviews with Sara Quinn of Tegan & Sara, Melissa Auf der Maur of the Smashing Pumpkins, Patty Schemel of Hole, Chantal Kreviazuk, and many more of the music industry’s most talented women.”

Special guest Wayne Carter, Executive Director, FIN: Atlantic International Film Festival will introduce the film and host a Q&A session after the movie.

Free dinner – pizza, drinks, and cookies (while supplies last)!
