The Art of Female-film-making
On April 6th Shorts On Tap will present its first recurrent series: Women In Revolt in London’s Stow Film Lounge. This will be the first of three screenings that will take viewers on an exploration into female-film-making. The programme is in collaboration with Club Des Femmes: a positive female space for the re-examination of ideas through art and is funded by Film London’s Boost Award.
The night promises to deliver the best of female film- making talent with a selection of extraordinary work depicting, challenging and describing every essence of womanhood.
The series also investigates the female form and the casual use of female nudity that is a topic silenced by our generations commodification over sex and sexuality. This event aims to give power and ownership of the female body back to the women who possess them.
But this is not a warning to men, who are welcome to join women on this emblematic march for equality through film.
The first chapter of the series The Chase focuses on the pursuit of a normal childhood. The transition into womanhood and the interior conflicts and challenges encountered along the journey. Chasing happiness, normality and dreams as well as being chased.
As always with Shorts On Tap, the films will be unveiled on the night and after the films have been screened there will be a platform for discussion and Q&A with the films directors and guest speakers.
Apart from a guaranteed good night out it will be an amazing opportunity to watch some radical independent films, debate social and political ideas and pave the way for more female recognition in the film industry.

Films screening start at 8pm. Show ends approximately at 10pm
