Alice Fest is named for Alice Guy-Blaché (1873–1968), a filmmaking pioneer and one of the first film directors. Her career spanned more than twenty-five years, during which she directed, produced, wrote, or oversaw more than seven hundred films. From 1896–1906, she was Gaumont Film Company’s head of production, and is generally considered to be the first filmmaker to systematically develop narrative filmmaking. Many of her films have been lost, and in many instances her accomplishments have been credited to one of her male colleagues.
