The London Feminist Film Festival (LFFF) was set up in 2012 as a response to the underrepresentation of women in the film industry, as well as to the lack of films addressing feminist issues and the fact that the representation of women on screen is often narrow and stereotypical.
LFFF will return for another year in 2013 and in May opened submissions for feminist films from women filmmakers from around the world. Please see here: http://londonfeministfilmfestival.com/submissions-lfff2/.
The first LFFF (29 Nov to 3 Dec 2012) was a great success, with nearly all sessions selling out before the festival. LFFF 2012 ran over four days and screened 16 films from around the world, including the UK premiere of Lesbiana: A Parallel Revolution and our LFFF award-winners Ladies' Turn and Kung Fu Grandma. Each screening was followed by a panel discussion featuring filmmakers, feminist activists, academics, and arts critics. For more information, please see last years' programme here:
Guidelines for this year's submissions are as follows:
� Women directors from any country may enter. In the case of multiple directors, all should be women.
� Films should deal with feminist issues and/or be feminist in their representation of women.
� Films can be of any length or genre, and from any year.
Deadline: 31 August 2013
