The Citizen Jane Film Festival is back for its third year. Beginning Oct. 15, the festival features films directed, written, produced and edited by women.

The festival is in collaboration with Stephens College, which, since 2004, has invited female filmmakers, producers, and writers from all over the country to present their films in Columbia as part of the Citizen Jane Film Series, according to the festival’s website.

Growing out of the success of the film series, the Citizen Jane Film Festival first premiered in October 2008.
