The NYC Feminist Film Week presents its third annual film program committed to increasing the visibility of women and of all trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming filmmakers. Our program aims to foster critical dialogue among filmmakers and the general public, using queer/trans/feminist approaches to interrogate cultural constructions of gender, sexuality, race, class, age, and dis/ability.

Organized around the ongoing theme of feminist film genealogies, the series asks the following questions: What might a genealogy of feminist film look like in its ethics and aesthetics? How do feminist film practices function as forms of political and critical intervention? What strategies do they employ to unsettle and dismantle racism, heterosexism, transphobia, classism, and stigmas around sexuality, illness, and dis/ability? And how do feminist film and media practitioners articulate queer, trans, POC, working class, immigrant, dis/abled, and other marginalized experiences and identities?

Inspired by international feminist film festivals like Cineffable and the London Feminist Film Week, the NYC Feminist Film Week focuses on the social and material aspects of filmmaking, placing feminist film production within specific historical and geographical contexts while also creating connections among films, filmmakers, communities, and audiences across space and time. This year’s program focuses on issues surrounding sexuality with a focus on pleasure as a feminist strategy for resistance and community building. The FFW’19 line-up thus celebrates the intertextuality of film while recognizing the unique contributions of feminist film pioneers alongside new and emerging filmmakers.

Programmer: S.H. Varino; guest programmers: Patricia Silva & Maya Suess.
