Of the 16 films debuting at the Sundance Film Festival this year, only three were created by women. Alice Fest 2014, a festival at Durham’s Full Frame Theater, seeks to offer female perspectives in a male-dominated industry. The festival showcases short films and developing films by women with a particular emphasis on films about women's lives. Host Frank Stasio talks with festival director Vivian Bowman-Edwards and filmmakers Carol Bash and Camden Watts.

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
