The Dublin Feminist Film Festival returns from 20 – 22 November.
Dublin Feminist Film Festival has established firm roots on Dublin’s cultural calendar, shining a spotlight on women in film. DFFF promotes and celebrates female filmmakers, hoping to inspire and empower others to get involved in filmmaking.
The theme for #DFFF2018 is REFRAME/REFOCUS. The programme this year will feature films not only directed by women, but also shot by female cinematographers. In emphasizing the role of the cinematographer, the festival aims to expand the notion of who ‘makes’ a film and what ‘Films by Women’ means, while also raising questions about whether and how films shot by women feature a different or other gaze.
A consideration of the often distinctive contribution of women directors and cinematographers to developments in film style and spectatorship.
Award Winning Filmmakers Deirdre O’Toole and Eimear Ennis Graham discuss their work.
