Women’s Voices in Films presents Hidden Figures
Introduction by Khadijah Ibrahim – Poet, playwright and activist
Closing remarks by Jools Heselwood – Lead Cllr for Women
Women’s Lives Leeds, Heart & A Listening Space are collaborating to show a season of films by women writers/film makers as part of Centenary Celebrations of Women’s Suffrage. This event will be introduced with a talk from poet, playwright and activist Khadijah Ibrahim and Jools Heselwood, Lead Cllr for Women, will provide closing remarks. This is in celebration of how far women have come since getting the vote and to recognise the continued work of women to tackle discrimination and achieve equality of opportunity #womensvoicesinfilm50:50.
The idea to show films by women writers/directors is rooted in four simple principles:
- To show films made and/or directed by women.
- To show films on every genre -not just films about women or aimed at women
- To show films by women from all over the world
- To show films that attract a diverse audience
Doors open at 6.30pm.
Tickets £5/£4 available from HEART reception and website (use Book Now icon below).
