Women In Revolt: All About My Mother


Girls On Film’s takeover of the award-winning short film event Women In Revolt came into being on Wednesday the 21st September 2016. The transition has been a while in the making via our favourite short film night innovators Shorts On Tap, who started and still produce the evening, and wanted the night to be programmed by women. Together we cultivated a cross-art event that showcased poetry and films, was supported by the Human Rights and Literary charity English PEN, filmed by the intersectional feminist journal Another Gaze, and centred on the subject of Motherhood.

We will be programming Women In Revolt every month so if you’d like to be involved, either by submitting your female-directed short film or in the cross-art pre-event (all female performers of all kinds welcome), email us at girlsonfilm@shortsontap.com
