Meredith College Documentary Film Festival 

When: Sun., Jan. 24, 2 p.m. 2016
Price: free


CARSWELL AUDITORIUM—This is Meredith College's third annual mini-festival for documentaries, many with a local focus and the filmmakers invited for post-screening discussions. The highlights are the bookends: The festival begins at 2 p.m. with Brewconomy, an hour-long doc by Meredith graduate Camden Watts that boosts North Carolina's booming craft beer scene, and ends at 7 p.m. with Althea, a feature-length film by Durham filmmakers Rex Miller, Elisabeth Haviland James and Nancy Buirski that tells the story of Althea Gibson, the first black woman to compete at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. In between, at 4 p.m., you can catch a raft of shorts, many of them also focused on women's accomplishments, with subjects including pioneering female aviators and law enforcement officers. The event is free and open to the public, and you can drop in for whichever films you'd like to see.

2 p.m., free, 3800 Hillsborough St., Raleigh, 919-760-8507, —Brian Howe
