LAUNCH OF NEW SERIES OF FEMINISM ON FILM : LOUDER NOW!
A night to launch LOUDER NOW! a series of films and discussions presented by The Gender Research Group at Newcastle University.
The night will see a special screening SUMMER SCHOOL to spark a discussion on what feminism is today and its future, hosted by Dr Carolyn Pedwell and Dr Kate Chedgzoy from The Gender Research Group, and filmmaker Marcie MacLellan.
After the panel discussion, conversations can continue into the evening in the Star and Shadow bar.
ABOUT THE FILM: SUMMER SCHOOL (2010, documentary)
In the summer of 2010, while the media was buzzing about the 'return of feminism', an activist training conference was held in Central London by UK Feminista. Inexperienced activists of all ages and backgrounds attended. When it seems like the rest of the world has got it all wrong, this documentary follows young feminists looking for a few lessons in how to make things right.
This documentary premiered at the Southbank Centre in London in March 2011, and was described by the media as "a case study in empowerment" and "not to be missed."
Guest Speakers: Marcie MacLellan (Summer School's director/producer), Dr Carolyn Pedwell (GRG, Newcastle University), Dr Kate Chedgzoy (GRG, Newcastle University).
ABOUT OUR NEW SERIES: LOUDER NOW!
LOUDER NOW! is a monthly screening of films of a feminist nature at The Star and Shadow Cinema, presented by The Gender Research Group at Newcastle University. It is intended that these films will enlighten, provoke and spark discussion, build networks, and perhaps inspire action. Each film will showcase a different aspect of feminist thought and politics, be introduced by a specialist and post-film discussion will be encouraged. LOUDER NOW! promotes an open atmosphere where every opinion, thought and feeling will be respected.
LOUDER NOW! is brought to the Star and Shadow with support from The Gender Research Group at Newcastle University.
All LOUDER NOW! events are free to attend (although £1 membership to the Star and Shadow is required).
