tue14sepAll Daytue26oct7 + 7: Prominent Women Filmmakers from the UK and UkraineOnline Film Festival(All Day) Event Organized By: TAKFLIX Country:Virtual

Event Details

We’re excited to co-curate 7 + 7 with Ukrainian film platform Takflix

.  7 weeks from 14 September.

 7 pairs of female-directed short films, FREE to watch online including rarely-seen films by Maya Deren, Ngozi Onwura, Kira Muratova & more.

WHEN HOLLYWOOD WAS DEEP IN ITS GOLDEN AGE, DOROTHY ARZNER, DOROTHY DAVENPORT, TRESSIE SOUDERS, AND MANY MORE WOMEN WERE RIGHT THERE, MAKING THEIR OWN FILMS.

IT’S NOT EVEN A TREND THAT REALLY ABATED, BECAUSE IT WAS NEVER A TREND. FOR SO LONG, WOMEN BEING FILMMAKERS WAS SIMPLY PART OF THE NORM, AND WHILE RECENT STUDIES HAVE MADE IT CLEAR THAT THE INDUSTRY NEEDS.

A WAKE-UP CALL WHEN IT COMES TO THE SKILLS OF SOME OF OUR FINEST WORKING FILMMAKERS WHO JUST SO HAPPEN TO BE WOMEN, STRIDES CONTINUE TO BE MADE.

 

Time

September 14 (Tuesday) - October 26 (Tuesday)
