    So instead of doing your job and judging the films presented, you took the opportunity to use the festival to push feminism. Shame on you.

    i guess i don't understand what she's saying because i haven't seen the films... but her comments seem very self serving and entitled... i didn't like the way women are portrayed in films, with some exceptions... i want women who are proactive and have their own agencies that don't just react to the men around them... ok, not all women are like that. women come with all different perspectives, personalities and priorities. people write about what they know, and i have no doubt the writers based many of the characters you disliked on real women they know. i'm sorry they don't all know the women you recognize in your day-to-day life. that doesn't make them any less valid. people can't all be hollywood stars.
