International Women’s Day is on 8 March 2021 and we are asking where are the female filmmakers? We have always strived for bridging the gender gap in the screen dance world, achieving 50/50 representation from the inception of our Screen.dance festival.
We have just crunched the numbers for Screen.dance 2021 – 43 female and 27 male directors across all our competitive and non-competitive programme strands this year – this is 62% female directors of screen dance.
As our Screen.dance website grows we hope that we will continue to be a vital research tool including for female filmmakers, alongside the likes of Women Make Film resource celebrating 130 years of cinema by 183 female directors.
It’s almost time to start watching. Get your front row seats booked. Our Screen.dance 2021 screening room doors will be wide open from 11 to 13 March 2021!
