In CinemaAttic we are a bunch of optimists. We feel very partial to the positive change that is taking place in the global film industry. Long overdue, it finally seems to be entering a new phase where women are not only to become more welcome as creators, but also their input on every level of cinematic story-telling more appreciated. We couldn’t be more excited to be part of it, because in order for the female voice to be heard, there should be platforms that amplify it. So prepare for February to be loud and proud for women!

LesBonesNenes_HD_Recc709_0089494-1024x429This month we’re asking ourselves and you, and everyone else – what is the female side of the story? Is there only one way to tell it? Does it only have to be entirely positive? Our rebel spirit demands to go to the margins and bring up a bunch of questions and offer a variety of options for you, because we don’t think there is just one way to express it. And so what you will see in our short film programme this month is many reflections of female gaze, and female voice, and some great female direction. It will be atmospheric, and troublesome and hopeful. It will not be entirely right or entirely wrong, like none of the human beings are. But there definitely will be increased levels of warmth and empathy. Tenderness and yet incredible strength of spirit side by side. There will be pain and there will be love, both maddening. So you are all invited to witness this beautiful rollercoaster.

This screenings are F-rated. Films are given an F-rating if directed by women, written by women and/or present significant female characters on screen, in their own right. f-rated.org.

 

PANEL DEBATE – CONVERSATIONS

Once again we will put gender parity in film industry in comparative perspective, inviting professionals from Spain, Mexico or UK to share good practice and name and shame some of the most urgent actions to be tackled.  

The “Conversations” will be focused on policy/public programmes towards gender parity, review of the year, comparative perspective between countries, quotas, impact and actions to be taken. A second part will focus on artistic aspects of representativeness, overcoming the so called female gaze and what it means in 2018, with a particular interest on the role of producers and cinematographers, being the least represented area of the industry.

The final list of panellists will be announced soon, below some of the professionals that will join the conversations:

Edinburgh Panel (Free, Register here)

Milica Milosevic-Robson, Head of Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion at Creative Scotland

Flore Cosquer, Project Manager and Producer at Scottish Documentary Institute

Dr. Itandehui Jansen, UG Programme Director Film & TV at Edinburgh College of Art

Glasgow Panel:
