At LFFF we believe in the potential of filmmaking as feminist activism and as an agent of social change. Each year, we bring to you a selection of films from around the world that address pressing and underdiscussed feminist issues.
In our 6th edition, filmmakers exposed the threats faced by human rights defenders in Latin America, and saluted the efforts of a grassroots campaign to end period poverty in the UK. They were fat activists who hiked without shame in Canada and researchers exploring romance between incarcerated women in Spain.
Audiences had a chance to cheer Afro-Brazilian feminists taking to the streets and listen to three generations of Bamiléké women discussing the complexities of culture clashes and tradition. We discussed the many faces of motherhood: a fetishized instrument of social control, a connecting link to identity and heritage, or a territory vulnerable to male violence.
Once more, we brought you a Feminist Classic and present to you, for the first time at LFFF, we had a Zine Fair and a Riot Grrrl night.
We hope you enjoyed LFFF 2018 as much as we enjoyed making it happen and want to thank you for being part of it!
