  • Dr. Tarlan Chahardovali (Postdoctoral Research Scholar at the Global Sport Institute)


The Tucker Center Film Festival

It is well documented that women's sport and female athletes are underrepresented in the sport media and in mainstream feature films. The Tucker Center Film Festival (TCFF), the first of its kind to highlight women in sport films, was established in 2011 and is presented in conjunction with the annual celebration of National Girls and Women in Sports Day. The purpose of the event is to celebrate and create awareness for films and documentaries related to girls and women in sport.

Consistent with our mission to provide outreach and programming for the community The TCFF is free, open to the public, and family friendly.
