October’s Indie Film Series kicks off this week with a new lineup. We talk with founder Susan Woods about the films she selected for October.

There’s no shortage of films being released today, but only a small percentage feature significant roles for women. The organizers behind the Grand Rapids Feminist Film Festival want to shine the spotlight on women and on other groups who are under-represented in the media industry. Current State talks with organizer Lydia VanHoven about the festival.
