London Feminist Film Festival: celebrating international feminist films past and present.
The 2nd edition of the London Feminist Film Festival will run from 24 to 30 November at Hackney Picturehouse, London.
After the great response to the inaugural 2012 festival, LFFF has been extended to a whole week this year.
Over the seven days we will screen 10 feature length films and 21 short films, from 18 different countries, including eight UK Premieres, eight European Premieres, and six World Premieres.
We’ll be sharing insights into feminism around the world including ‘En la Casa, la Cama y la Calle’ about activism in Nicaragua, ‘Still Fighting’ about abortion clinic escorts in the US, and ‘Foot for Love’ about a South African football team’s campaign against lesbophobia. And we’ll also have UK-based films such as ‘To Hear Her Voice’ about suffragette theatre and ‘The Campaigner’ about a 78-year-old activist who refuses to conform to the narrow stereotype for older women.
We will also be showing two award-winning ‘Feminist Classic’ films from yesteryear – Lizzie Borden’s ‘Born in Flames’ and Sally Potter’s ‘The Gold Diggers’.
An integral part of the festival are the post-film panel discussions. These will give filmmakers and audiences a chance to discuss the films, the feminist issues raised by the films, and wider issues of women’s representation behind and in front of the camera. Panellists will include directors of the films we are showing, academics, critics, and women’s rights activists.
