International Women's Day
8 March

In a year in which we note the 100th anniversary of the right of some women to vote in the UK, we acknowledge that there is still much change needed if we're going to achieve gender parity in society. From the perspective of the film industry, it's been widely championed this year that female representation on and behind the screen is key to the development of the art form, its audiences and the industry's economic growth. Utilising the powerful tool for change that we know film can be, the titles in this strand will focus on female characters and are all 'F-rated' - a policy that aims to specifically highlight female storytellers, whether as director or screenwriter. Films made by a female director and screenwriter that also feature female-centric narratives receive the gold star triple F-rating.

This resource is made up of a Powerpoint presentation with activities and teacher's notes designed to enhance your experience of visiting the festival and can be used before or after viewing a film that is part of the Year of the Woman - Empowered Voices strand. You can cherry-pick the activities in this resource and use the ‘extend' or ‘simplify' suggestions for learners of different ages and stages.

There is an accompanying Film Literacy Activities pack available to download which contains worksheets referred to in the Powerpoint presentation
