Join us to talk about women in the film industry. Among many other exciting events surrounding the festival, there will be a screening of the beloved 1992 film "A League of Their Own", in which two sisters join the first professional female baseball team. Both of the film's leading ladies, Geena herself and co-star Rosie O'Donnell, will coach a celebratory softball game on Thursday May 7th that will coincide with the #BvilleFilmFest Twitter Party!
Additionally, two associate members of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League, which inspired the making of "A League of Their Own", will join them in the baseball diamond for this historic game. Gina Casey and Alice Fracasso played professional baseball for the Riverside Townies in Rhode Island from 1944-1945.
We’ll be live tweeting from the BFF softball game at the Twitter Party with photos, clips, and play-by-plays!
