After a one year hiatus, we are pleased to announce that the London Feminist Film Festival will be back for 2015!
You read it here first! Our call for submissions and festival details will follow soon!!!
Of course tomorrow marks International Women’s Day, and there will be thousands of events all around the world for you to attend. You can find out what is happening near you here. If you are in London like us, see below for a selection of events you may want to attend:
Saturday 7 March @ 12PM: Million Women Rise March against male violence, discrimination and oppression. Meeting place is Duke Street and the march sets off at 1.15PM along Oxford Street. See more details here.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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!
The 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!
Apologies for the long wait, but the next two panel discussions are now up on our YouTube channel and can be watched below:
CLAIMING SPACES PANEL DISCUSSION
BODY POLITICS PANEL DISCUSSION
We have had a busy few days and uploaded 3 more panel discussions from LFFF 2013.
On our YouTube channel you can now (re)watch the panel discussions for HERSTORIES, INSPIRING WOMEN and FEMINIST CLASSIC: Born in Flames + short.
There are plenty more to come so watch this space! Or subscribe to our YouTube channel…
We know it’s a bit cold (in the UK anyway!) to be thinking of short sleeves, but it will be summer before you know it!
There are still some LIMITED EDITION LFFF 2013 tshirts in stock and there’s still time to get them delivered in time for Christmas. All tshirts are made from organic fair trade cotton and cost just £12 including UK postage in our CHRISTMAS SALE!
We wish all of you a happy holiday period and a peaceful new year!
