Important LFFF news!

LFFF has decided to take a break for this year to plan for the future of the festival, including sourcing funding. So there won’t be an LFFF festival this year.

But the good news is that we will be bringing you one-off screenings throughout the year, so you can still get your fix of fantastic feminist films and inspiring discussion! Sign up to our newsletter by emailing newsletter@londonfeministfilmfestival.com, and ‘like’ us on Facebook, for news of these one-off screenings. We hope to see lots of you at the screenings throughout the year!

BastardsThe first screening we have planned is a partnership with Birds Eye View at their festival next month. Bastards is a moving documentary by Deborah Perkin, the inspiring story of an illiterate woman who took on tradition, her own family, and Moroccan law to secure a future for her illegitimate child. This is an important film that needs to be seen. We will be having a panel discussion straight after the film, with the director Deborah Perkin, Zibi Mir Hosseini (legal anthropology specialist and co-director with Kim Longinotto of Divorce Iranian Style), Olivia Lichenstein (BAFTA Award winning documentary filmmaker), and Fatima Mourad (Chair And Trustee of Al-Hasaniya Moroccan Women’s Refuge). The screening is at Hackney Picturehouse at 6.30pm on 9 April. Tickets are now on sale so snap yours up quick!

ACTIVISM Panel 3On Friday 29 November an almost sold out crowd at the Hackney Picturehouse witnessed a great selection of films during our ACTIVISM screening featuring four films: Foot for Love: The Thokozani Football Club in Paris, The Campaigner, To Hear Her Voice and At Home, in Bed and in the Streets (En la Casa, la Cama y la Calle).

We were blessed to have panellists from each film present on the panel and after the screening we heard from Elise Lobry and Veronica Noseda (directors, Foot for Love), Rebecca Brand (director, The Campaigner) and Clare Neylon (director, To Hear Her Voice), as well as Helen Dixon (featured in En la Casa, la Cama y la Calle). The panel was chaired by LFFFer Nicola Chang (MA Latin American Cultural Studies student at Birkbeck University) and you can now watch the discussion on our YouTube channel via the link below.
