SARAH JACOBSON FILM GRANT
Sarah Jacobson was a young DIY feminist who I met back in the 90’s. She was an interesting lady, complicated, yet down to earth, and always happy to lend a hand to others. She was especially keen to help DIY filmmakers who were making work about powerful, problematic women (like the lead character in her feature length movie Mary Jane’s Not A Virgin Anymore.) Sarah’s friends and admirers are making sure her helpfulness and DIY spirit will continue even in her absence (she passed away in 2004 ) by creating a film grant in her honor.
