Feminist Film Manifestos

Feminist Film Manifestos II

International Women’s Film Festival at the CCCB



Feminist Film Manifestos II continues the conversation started in year one by taking a journey through works which, from different viewpoints, have given cinematographic form to the debates surrounding the different types of feminism in the latter half of the 20th century and up until the present day.

Many of the materials chosen this year were, at the time of their production and release, explicit disruptions of the industry’s standardised models of femininity, and some have become icons and benchmarks, examples of a critical filmic practice that characterises feminist audiovisual representation.

The concept of manifesto as a declaration also provides the theme of the debate that forms part of the programme, including the intervention of the lecturer Elena Oroz.
