Tickets for the 2013 London Feminist Film Festival are now on sale via the Hackney Picturehouse website! Last year all but one screening sold out before the start of the festival, so we recommend you book your tickets now to avoid disappointment!
We have a great line-up of feminist films for you this year, by women directors from around the world, and each film session will be followed by a panel discussion with panellists including directors, film critics, academics, and feminist activists.
Short films include Half Value Life, which follows Afghanistan’s first woman chief prosecutor and her fight to protect women; To Hear Her Voice, about suffragette theatre; and Falling Blossom, a kaleidoscopic animation inspired by the plight of ‘comfort women’ in WW2. Our feature films this year include our festival opener, The Cut, about FGM in East Africa; The Spice Girls of India, the story of a group of sisters in Jaipur who run their own spice business; and Reflections Unheard, about black women in the civil rights movement.
This year we have two FEMINIST CLASSICS – Sally Potter’s The Gold Diggers is showing on Tuesday 26 November, and Lizzie Borden’s Born in Flames will be the last film of LFFF 2013 at 6pm on Saturday 30 November, followed straight after by our closing night party!
We look forward to seeing you at LFFF 2013!
