Dublin Feminist Film Festival has announced the dates and venue for this year’s festival, November 21st and 22nd at the Light House Cinema is a specialist independent cinema in Smithfield, Dublin. Their eclectic schedule includes feature films, shorts, classics, foreign language ... More.
The theme for #DFFF18 will be “Reframe/Refocus”. Rather than foreground particular topics, the programme this year will feature films not only directed by women, but also featuring women cinematographers, producers, DOPs etc. The festival hopes to broaden the notion of what the “by” means in “Films by Women,” while also raising questions about whether and how films shot by women feature a different or other gaze.
More details will be announced shortly. The festival will also run a Short Film Programme and their SHORT FILM PRIZE will be open soon for submissions.
Dublin Feminist Film Festival promotes and celebrates female filmmakers, hoping to inspire and empower others to get involved in filmmaking. This involves considering women on-screen, but also behind the camera, through celebrating and showcasing fantastic female filmmaking, as well as demonstrating that women make compelling and complex characters and subjects.
The festival is run voluntarily and all profits go to charity.
