"Keep making feminist films, and keep resisting!" So says the London Feminist Film Festival, and we reckon they're right on the money.
Submissions for the festival's fifth edition are now open to all women filmmakers around the world. Deadline for entry: 30 April 2017.
2017 is shaping up to be a scary time, and women's rights are even more under threat. With the rise of right-wing politics in Europe and a US president who is threatening human rights and the future of the planet, it is even more important to amplify the voices of oppressed groups and to show different perspectives.
LFFF is calling on filmmakers from across the globe to send in their feminist films - as always, from any genre, year, or country - so they can continue to bring feminist concerns into the mainstream. LFFF is strongly committed to supporting first-time women filmmakers, and encourages women to get their viewpoint out there by picking up a camera, phone, or other device and starting making films.
Films can be submitted via their website: http://londonfeministfilmfestival.com/2017-submissions #LFFF2017
