London Feminist Film Festival 2012 (London, 29 Nov - 2 Dec 2012)


The London Feminist Film Festival celebrates feminist films past and present. The first festival is 29 Nov – 2 Dec 2012.

The festival was set up as a response to the underrepresentation of women in the film industry, as well as to the lack of films addressing feminist issues and the fact that the representation of women on screen is often narrow and stereotypical.

We want to celebrate women creatives whilst ensuring that this feminist ethos also extends to the films we show. The festival will be a celebration of feminist films past and present. Our aim is to inspire discussion about feminism and film, to support women directors, and to get feminist films seen by a wider audience.

The inaugural year of the London Feminist Film Festival will take place at Hackney Picturehouse from 29 November to 2 December 2012.

We will be screening feminist shorts and feature films from women directors around the world, including films by up-and-coming directors as well as feminist classics, and featuring 6 premieres. Each film session will be accompanied by a panel discussion featuring filmmakers, academics, and activists.
