The screening will be followed by a panel discussion and an opening night party details of which to be announced soon! Other highlights of the festival include a 30th anniversary screening of the 1982 feminist classic A Question of Silence by Marleen Gorris and a screening of Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 about the award-winning writer and activist’s time in Germany. We also have a great selection of short films some of which we are showing with feature length films and some of which will be shown in our two special shorts sessions Herstories and Fighting Back! An important and integral part of the festival will be the post-film panel discussions. These will give us all a chance to discuss the films the feminist issues raised by the films and wider issues of women’s representation behind and in front of the camera. We’re happy to say that writer critic and LFFF matron Bidisha will be chairing all of the panel discussions. Panellists will include directors of the films we are showing academics critics and women’s rights activists.

We really look forward to seeing you at the screenings chatting with you at the opening night party and hearing your thoughts on the films at the post-film panel discussions.
