From Reel to Real: Women, Feminism and the London Film-makers’ Co-operative

23 – 25 September 2016

Tate Modern

As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the London Film-makers’ Co-operative (LFMC), this film programme, which opens Tate Modern’s Counter-Histories series, explores the unique contribution of the women filmmakers associated with the LFMC to both experimental and feminist film. This presentation of more than forty films—both single screen and expanded—by twenty-five filmmakers from different generations, aims to reveal the breadth and diversity of these women’s practices while attempting to foreground commonalities in their approach to filmmaking and to the ways in which film can intersect with feminism.
