Celebrating a Decade of Vassar Film in Washington, DC Over the last ten years, the Vassar Club of Washington, D.C. has been honored to showcase the film works of Vassar faculty, students, and alumnae/i.

This year, as we return to the site of our first FilmFest, the theatre at the beautiful Goethe-Institut Washington, we hope you’ll mark your calendar for October 18, 2014, and join us that weekend as we throw the biggest party of all. This milestone event will reunite many of the filmmakers who have shared their talents with us in the past, along with the volunteers and friends whose efforts made these ten years a reality. So, as we pull together the details of the event, and as you prepare your film for submission, we ask that you keep an eye out for the call for entries in June, and make plans to join us in October at the 10th Anniversary Celebration for Vassar FilmFest 2014. In the meantime, we’d love to hear from you with ideas, comments or questions—please email the 2014 Vassar FilmFest co-chairs: Yvette Downs '82 at mydowns2@aol.com and/or Karen Cox '80 at kcox1377@att.net.

A Panel Discussion on Public Service

April 26, 2014, 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
1 Veterans Place, Silver Spring, MD, United States

From our founding as an alternative to the status quo of elite male education, to the suffragettes who advanced the banner that lead to the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, Vassar has a long and honorable tradition of putting our thoughts into action. Join us for an inside look into how Vassar graduates have invested themselves in public service, from running for office to working in federal agencies. Moderated by Chip Reid ‘77, CBS National Correspondent. Kindly RSVP at www.eventbrite.com/e/a-panel-discussion-on-public-service-tickets-11247763363.
