Mt Baker Theater: An Evening with Director Catherine Hardwicke of Twilight

  • Share:
Event Description:
Before Greta Gerwig, there was Catherine Hardwicke. Catherine Hardwicke's film, Twilight broke box office records as the highest-ever opening weekend gross, at the time, for a live-action, female-directed film. Her film remains in the top 10 for highest grossing women-directed films. CASCADIA International Women’s Film Festival presents “An Evening with Director Catherine Hardwicke" as its 2024 Honored Guest program. Learn how Hardwicke prepares before she ever says "Action" during a 90-minute presentation with clips from her films to illustrate her filmmaking process.

Hardwicke made her directorial debut with the acclaimed 2003 film Thirteen and has gone on to be one of Hollywood’s most respected women directors. She has tackled almost every genre imaginable–drama, action, comedy and even a Biblical epic. As an outspoken champion for women in film, she shares her honest experiences as a female director in an effort to highlight inequalities in the industry and help to enact change.

A ticketed meet and greet dessert reception, with cash bar, for Hardwicke will take place immediately after the presentation in Mount Baker Theatre's Encore Room.
