We are so grateful for every single person who has contributed to Femspectives in the past, attended our events or engaged with us in other ways.
We started Femspectives in 2018 to create a platform for feminist storytelling in Glasgow and champion the creators of this work. We wanted to use film as a means of community building and provide opportunities for non-hierarchical conversations and learning experiences. Recent events have shown that we needed to take a step back and return to our starting point. We apologise for letting you down.
Femspectives supports and stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and pledges to work against and challenge the systemic oppression and egregious violence that has been perpetrated on black lives.
As a white-led organisation that benefits from white privilege, we are examining our own complicity within the system. We are listening, learning and unlearning and have a long way to go. There are a lot of resources out there and we need to educate ourselves, without relying on our black friends, colleagues and families to shoulder that burden.
We are delighted to announce two visiting filmmakers at this year’s festival!
Beryl Magoko, director of IN SEARCH… (Germany/Kenya 2018) and Jo Schmeiser, director of MOMENTS OF RESISTANCE (Austria 2019) will attend Femspectives 2020. We will host discussions with both filmmakers after their respective films.
The COMPLETE programme for Femspectives 2019 – the feminist film festival in Glasgow – is now available!
