Alice Fest is named for filmmaking pioneer Alice Guy-Blaché (1873–1968). 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. Watch clips from some of Alice Guy-Blaché’s films and learn more about her life and career here
