Kirsty Fairclough will use a diverse range of examples to explore women’s roles in film production and consumption. Discussion topics will include the role of female stars, the casting of actresses in lead and support roles, gender stereotyping and a study of female audiences.

There will be a number of in-depth case studies of female directors such as Patricia Cardoso (REAL WOMEN HAVE CURVES), Jane Campion (THE PIANO) and Beeban Kidron (ORANGES ARE NOT THE ONLY FRUIT, BRIDGET JONES: THE EDGE OF REASON).
