Norfolk, Va. – Norfolk Public Libraries paid respect to women film makers in the Hampton Roads area for National Women’s History Month.

The Feminine Freedom Film Festival was held at the Slover Library in Downtown Norfolk Saturday. The event was a kick off to the month long celebration of all women and their contributions to the world.

The film creators were honored and showcased their work on topics like human trafficking, spirituality and sexuality, HIV/ AIDS and the definition of beauty.

Tonya Marie Shell, better known as Poetikk Justice, created this event to pay respect to the women in this area who are, “dedicated and motivated to the movement of cinematic film.”

A life long celebrator of women,  Poetikk Justice finds that having this event and others like it will bring celebration to women in different mediums.

“Its really imperative to show and highlight the talents that women have. We are progressive, we are aggressive, we are motivating, inspiring, and all the adjectives that you could possible think of,” said Poetikk Justice.
