The 2021 rePRO Film Fest Program is now available! Fifteen films over ten days, with countless ways for you to make an impact in the fight for reproductive justice. 

This year's lineup is 100% directed by individuals using she/her pronouns, with 67% of films directed by BIPOC or AAPI individuals. 


Individual tickets are now on sale. Tickets are $10 per film or shorts program, with all sales being directly converted to donations to our three Beneficiary Organizations: Black Women's Health Imperative, The Lilith Fund, and No More Secrets.

In addition, many films will be accompanied by a Call-to-Action Conversation, which will include filmmakers, experts in the reproductive rights field, as well as resources to help navigate a number of different healthcare challenges. All Call-to-Action Conversations are free and open to the public, so stay tuned for details.

Looking to make a bigger impact on our Beneficiary Organizations? Then consider purchasing a $75 all-access pass! In addition to supporting these crucial women-led organizations, you will also receive exclusive on demand access to all films in this year's festival.

rePRO Film Fest will present its second ChangemakeHER Award to Jonelle Procope, President & CEO of the legendary Apollo Theater, on Monday, August 16th at 6:30pm ET / 5:30pm CT / 3:30pm PT. Procope will be interviewed by Emmy award-winning ABC reporter Deborah Roberts. 

Since 2003, Procope has led the Apollo, an American cultural treasure and vibrant non-profit organization that is rooted in the Harlem community but that speaks to, and welcomes, people from around New York, the nation and the world. Under her leadership, the Apollo has remained steadfast in its commitment to meeting the needs of its community while standing firm it what is has always been — a beacon for Black artists and contemporary culture, and a catalyst for social and civic advocacy.

The rePRO team is excited to honor Procope for her commitment to the art of storytelling - particularly supporting people from historically marginalized communities - and its power to humanize lived experiences and catalyze important dialogue that can incite advocacy and awareness in a wholly unique way.

This event is free and open to the public, and will be broadcast on the rePRO Film Fest website.

Join us as the multitalented Tony nominated Broadway star & Billboard top 5 recording artist Laura Bell Bundy — best known for her Broadway roles in “Legally Blonde - The Musical,” “Hairspray,” and “Sweet Charity” — hosts a pre-festival Yoni Hour (bring your favorite Happy Hour beverage!) to be released on Monday, August 2nd at 7pm ET/ 6pm CT/ 4pm PT.

Laura will be joined by her Women of Tomorrow album co-writer and podcast co-host, Shea Carter, where the duo will delve into reproductive health issues facing women throughout history. The event will take an intimate look at both Bundy and Carter’s personal journeys and their own experiences with reproductive justice.

You're invited to a Sneak Peek of RED ALERT: THE FIGHT AGAINST FIBROIDS

On Monday, August 16th at 8:30pm ET / 7:30pm ET / 5:30pm ET, we will screen a 10 minute excerpt from this vital upcoming feature documentary, followed by a discussion with director/producer Erica L. Taylor and special guests.

Red Alert: The Fight Against Fibroids is a film project designed to build awareness and compassion for the vast amounts of women whose lives have been interrupted by fibroid tumors and related reproductive illnesses. There is no known cause or cure for fibroids, but nearly half-million fibroid-related hysterectomies are performed annually in the United States. In some cases, the lasting effects of permanent, invasive surgery are mental and physical distress.  While 70% of all women have fibroids, 80% of black women will have symptomatic fibroid tumors by age 50. Red Alert unmasks the hopes and fears of real fibroid patients while presenting cutting edge research that will spark progressive change for millions of women. 

This event is free and open to the public, and will be broadcast on the rePRO Film Fest website.

rePRO Film Fest advocates for women’s* reproductive health care, justice, and bodily autonomy. Through film and conversation, we lift intersectional issues, using the power of storytelling as a catalyst for knowledge, intention, and action.
 
Your sponsorship of our organization helps ensure our mission, and positions us to spotlight the organizations and voices fighting in the reproductive rights arena.
