Women Of The Lens Film Festival Returns Saturday 23rd & Saturday 30th Apr 2022

Another influential programme will be showcasing the creativity of black women filmmakers as Women Of The Lens Film Festival returns with live film screenings industry-led panel discussion and professional networking at Rich Mix, 35-37 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA on Saturday 23rd and Saturday 30th April 2022.

The 17 films are curated into seven themes; Sankofa Women, Roll Call, The Future’s Here, Love Incommunicado, The Strength Of Acceptance, Documenting Justice and Advertising Race.

As well as film screenings, the Festival launches with a high-impact discussion called; Sankofa Women: A series of films featuring stories about migration, heritage, oral history and intergenerational legacy. The Theme will focus on experiences outside of the Capital. It will focus on Welsh stories and experiences beyond what we’ve expected to be the common experience, which is often London-centric.

About Women Of The Lens Film Festival.

Women Of The Lens is a live festival of film, broadcast and digital programming. It was created to celebrate and highlight the achievements of Black British women in the UK creative film industries. Founded by Jenifer G. Robinson, Women Of The Lens will be specifically British in its sources with an inclusion of productions from international regions. It was created because the representation of black women in the UK film industries remains stubbornly low. It was created to highlight the complexity, diversity and multiplicities of black women, which is ordinarily overlooked in the conventional media-sphere. Whilst our stories are by and for black women, we sincerely welcome allied people who will support the ethos and spirit of Women Of The Lens through their own work.
