Feminist Film Manifestos I

International Women’s Film Festival at the CCCB



This is a filmic journey through the documents which, from different viewpoints, have given cinematographic form to the debates featuring feminism in the latter half of the 20th century and the start of the 21st.

The aim of this cycle is to bring together a series of miscellaneous works that inform a particular two-way dialogue about the mutual influences between the critical discourses of various forms of feminism and film creation. It also addresses the role of audiovisual activism in the interpretation and dissemination of their ideologies: commitment and political stance in some films, critical tension with regard to institutional systems of representation in others, creations that are open to radicality and to formal and ideological courage.
