We are Hitting the Pause Button on Film Festival
We have had the honour of a weekly online film festival, curated Heroine Lisl Ponger, for 52 weeks during 2020/21. We’ve travelled the world, visited many cultures and heard many stories.
We explored themes of race in #BlackLivesMatter, climate change and the pandemic in The Butterfly Thief and gender-based violence in I Am Unbeatable. We saw what hair meant to different cultures in Hair Stories, women’s roles under the big top in Circus! Circus! and performing mermaids in Underwater Women.
Our weekly film festival has given us the opportunity to explore beyond our bubbles in a time of so much restriction and although we are pressing pause on film festival for now, we have a funny feeling they’ll be back…
