Feminist Films, Feminist Histories – 30 April 2016

Feminist Films, Feminist Histories

Part of the Radical Film Network Festival and Unconference, Glasgow, 29 April-2 May 2016

Led by Dr Kate Dossett and Dr Gina Denton (University of Leeds), and filmmaker Sharon Hooper (Leeds College of Art)

This session will showcase original material from Feminist Archive North and from feminist production companies Leeds Animation Workshop and Vera Media. We will also be showing some new material wherein filmmakers, academics and archivists reflect on both the archive itself and the act of archiving. Part of a broader project Feminist Archives, Feminist Futures which explores the impact of archives and the act of archiving on feminist history, activism and practices. We are particularly keen to address ideas of audience and engagement with archives and will present material from our work-in-progress interactive documentary (i-doc).

Date: Saturday 30 April 2016, 6pm – 8pm

Venue: Glasgow Women’s Library

This session is part of a series of events organised by Glasgow Women’s Library as part of the RFN Unconference – for more details and to book a place, please see here. More information on the RNF Unconference can be found here.
