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.

The inaugural 2012 London Feminist Film Festival took place from 29 November to 2 December at Hackney Picturehouse. The 2012 festival saw eight screenings, over four days, screening a total of 16 films by up-and-coming directors as well as a number of feminist classics. Each film session was accompanied by a panel discussion or Q&A featuring filmmakers, activists, academics, and arts critics.

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.

The festival is back for its second year between 24 and 30 November 2013.
