 Yes it is. Thanks for pointing that out. I've edited the original post to reflect that spelling.

As per the latest updates to the TCM schedule, FRIDA (2002) has been added to the schedule on October 29, bumping up I AM SAM (2001) into the early hours of October 30. I have taken the opportunity to edit the original post to reflect this programming change and to indicate the name of each director TCM is spotlighting in this series.

It was announced today, in an interview TCM General Manager Jennifer Dorian gave to Variety, that this series of programming will be presented by actress /occasional TCM guest host Illeana Douglas and several female filmmakers and historians.

 

As previously indicated, TCM is partnering with the Women In Film Los Angeles organization to present this series. 

 

I have updated the original post to reflect the themes and co-hosts for each night of the festival.
