Zola Mumford earned her MLIS degree from the University of Washington Information School and also holds a certificate in Distance Learning Design and Development from the UW Extension program.  Her professional background includes film festival curation; media and arts production; historical research; and archival work with film and print materials.  She manages the Women and Film section of the WSSLinks website, a resource of the ACRL/Women and Gender Studies Section. She is a member of the American Library Association, the Association of College and Research Librarians (ACRL), and the Carl Brandon Society, an  organization that helps to further awareness of race and ethnicity in speculative literature, science fiction and related fields. Since 2003, she has been the Curator of the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival, a program of Seattle’s Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute. This annual event includes a competitive international call for films, as well as collaboration and outreach to independent filmmakers and local arts and education organizations.
