We are delighted to be part of The Camera is Ours, a study day organized by Ros Cranston, BFI non-fiction curator, at BFI Southbank on 5 March, 12 – 5pm. The day features talks about women documentary makers from the 1930s to the present day featured in the BFI season such as the Budge Cooper,Grierson sisters, Mary Field, Kay Mander and Margaret Thomson. Speakers include Toby Haggith (IWM) film archivist Sarah Easen and season curator, Ros Cranston and concludes with a screening and discussion of Independent Miss Craigie with producer/director Lizzie Thynne and Associate Producer Hollie Price.

The wider season features work of contemporary women directors such as Andrew Arnold (Cow) and Penny Woolcock (From the Land to the Sea Beyond) so we are in brilliant company!
