The Margaret Mead Film Festival is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and DER is thrilled to be participating! We are proud to announce that our Executive Director, Alice Apley, has been selected to participate in the festival’s special anniversary program, “40 for 40”:

“We asked 40 extraordinary women to join us in celebrating the 40th annual Margaret Mead Film Festival. These leaders signed on to help us highlight Margaret Mead’s legacy of boldness, humanity and innovation.”  — Margaret Mead Film Festival

Alice will be introducing films and sharing words of wisdom alongside a spectacular group of women who have contributed to the festival and to arts and culture over the past 40 years. Check out the Mead site for the full list of 40 for 40 speakers.
