To celebrate 100 years since women got the vote and our women & activism documentary for Barking and Dagenham council, we are hosting a range of women and film workshops and screenings throughout the summer and Autumn.
Women are often portrayed in a specific light in film and TV and although we are making progress, it’s still not where it should be. We often see women as the damsel in distress, the sexual distraction, or simply there to prop their male counterpart up. But we all know women are far more complex than this. So does this stem from how we are writing our female characters in the first place?
Our screenwriting workshop will focus on female characters, and writing authentic female voices. We hope the workshop will be interactive, with those who attend, willing to share ideas, get feedback and voice their opinion.
This workshop will be taught by the amazing A D Cooper.
Our workshop will take place in Barking on the 18th August and is FREE. More details can be found here.
