Starting from 12 March, the National Film and Sound Archive’s Arc Cinema will have free screenings of the Women Make Film series. The announcement coincides with International Women’s Day.
Women Make Film is a 14 part docu-series by Mark Cousins that explores the history of women in film. Episode one, showing this Saturday, is about how to open a film and craft the right tone. A film’s opening is its first chance to make an impression on the audience: what kind of world are we in, and how does it make us feel? Watch and learn from some of the great women filmmakers.
