Louder Now! Feminism On Film


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.

Why Feminist Films at The Star and Shadow? Feminism is re-entering social vocabulary – women and girls are reclaiming the ‘F-word’ for their own, away from postfeminist rhetoric and into a new feminist space.  This series of events will open that space and allow for discussion and debate about what feminism is in society today. 

LOUDER NOW! is brought to the Star and Shadow with support from The Gender Research Group at Newcastle University. http://www.ncl.ac.uk/niassh/GenderResearch

The CANNY LITTLE LIBRARY will be open at each LOUDER NOW! event. Canny Little Library is a small collectively run library stocking radical, informative, alternative books and zines, including sections on politics, global struggles, DIY, info for action, queer, anarchism, feminism, workers’ struggles, cookery, art, children and young people and more. cannylittlelibrary.tumblr.com

All LOUDER NOW! events are free to attend (although £1 membership to the Star and Shadow is required).
