London Feminist Film Festival 2012

Call for submissions

The London Feminist Film Festival will take place over a weekend in November 2012. The festival aims to counterbalance the mainstream film industry’s narrow representation of women and its neglect of women’s issues by showing a selection of films made by women filmmakers from around the world. The films will be feminist either in their representation of women and/or their handling of feminist issues.

Deadline: 31 August 2012.
General rules:

  • Women directors from any country may enter.
  • Films should deal with feminist issues and/or be feminist in their representation of women.
  • Films can be of any length or genre.
  • Non-English language films must be presented in English-subtitled versions.
