London Feminist Film Festival

Years running: 11 (since 2012)

London Feminist Film Festival

International Feminist Film Festival.


The London Feminist Film Festival 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.

The festival celebrates women creatives whilst ensuring that the feminist ethos extends to the films shown during the festival. The festival celebrates feminist films both past and present and aims are to inspire discussion about feminism and film, to support women directors, and to get feminist films seen by a wider audience.

With almost 1000 people in attendance over the four days, the 2012 London Feminist Film Festival was a success. The great responses from filmmakers around the world and from our audiences underlined the need and support for a feminist film festival in the UK.
