Tuesday 3 December Girls On Film returns to HOME, for the last of its run of six 2019 Manchester shows. We’re going out with a bang!
Anna Smith is joined by Joy Wilkinson, screenwriter on the latest season of Dr Who, and playwright of The Sweet Science of Bruising. Also on stage is writer-directorof the tender and bittersweet feature Only You, Harry Wootliff – starring Josh O’Connor, currently in The Crown.
With us to review new and classic releases is Clarisse Loughrey, chief film critic for the Independent.
We’ll be looking back at at the female-led films that shaped 2019 and look ahead at what’s coming up in 2020 – including the five winners of the Bumble Female Film Force, unveiled in January, and HOME’s season of documentaries made by women, In Her View. Expect thought-provoking questions about film and feminism in this lively 70 minute show.
And of course we invite you, the audience, to join in and put your questions to the panel.
Have a listen below to episode 23 of Girls On Film last time we were at HOME, featuring Pamela Hutchinson and Anna Bogutskaya – alongside Terminator: Dark Fate’s Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis & Natalia Reyes.
