Cinenova and Bildwechsel Screening in Berlin

Cinenova and Bildwechsel Screening in Berlin at the Globale Film Festival

5th and 6th November, Cinema Moviemento

To develop a non-patriarchal perspective was a priority topic of feminist film after 1968. Media archives like bildwechsel (Hamburg) and film distributors like Cinenova (London) turned feminist theory into an image practice. Focussing on the image politics of labour and the body we want to discuss with activists from both institutions about the relationship between feminist movement, film and art.

feminism still work to do?
5 November, 6:15pm, Cinema Moviemento, Kottbusser Damm 22, 10967 Berlin

Ten videoworks by women+ artists on situations focusing topics of work/non-work, wage labor/unpaid labour and hints and tricks for a beautiful life. In favour of a definition of work beyond excessive labour and scarcity.
bildwechsel is following the tradition of political d.i.y mediaprojects, housing two big archives. One of them is the video collection as an audiovisual archive offering a panoramic view of video and film work by women+ over the last 30 years. Over 7.000 videos/films are archived at bildwechsel.

Cinenova screening

The Body Is the Locus of Politics, and of Rhythm
6 November, 3:30pm, Cinema Moviemento, Kottbusser Damm 22, 10967 Berlin

Cinenova is a London-based volunteer-run organization dedicated to preserving and distributing the work of women and feminist film- and video makers.
The programme represents Cinenova in its diversity and highlights certain aspects of feminism, racism, and post colonialism: A silent film by the female pioneer director Alice Guy Blaché on gender stereotypes, British filmmaker Sandra Lahire’s strong visual language reflecting society’s pressure on the female body, and a documentary by Prathiba Parmar addressing feminism, racism and solidarity between different radical civil rights movements in the US during the 1980s.

globale is a Berlin-based, non-profit and non-competitive film festival focusing on urgent political topics.

Meet Bev Zalcock at the Queer Film Festival Hamburg

All those who like experimental films, subversive underground productions and political queer art will certainly enjoy our special evening with London-based filmmaker Bev Zalcock and Bildwechsel. Bev Zalcock started making films in 1968, and for the past 16 years she and her partner, Sara Chambers, have worked together as “Pitbull Productions”. Their films are female-focused, comic and subversive and show yet again that even with almost no budget you can convey your own perception and visions of the world.
