An expert panel including Laraine Porter (British Silent Film Festival), Nuala O’Sullivan (Women Over 50 Film Festival) and Kate Kinninmont MBE (CEO, Women in Film and Television) discuss 120 years of women as makers and creators of cinema. The panel will be chaired by Melody Bridges, co-editor and contributing author of our bestselling Silent Women: Pioneers of Cinema.
It has been argued that the first narrative film was made in 1896 by director Alice Guy-Blache. 120 years later, only one woman has been awarded the Best Director trophy at the Academy Awards. Expect a lively debate about diversity within the film industry, favourite film clips from Lois Weber to Jane Campion, and a look ahead to how the television and film industry may change in the future.
