Reclaim the Frame x International
Developing audiences and promoting the circulation of films by women, internationally
Birds Eye View (UK), Flying Broom Foundation (Turkey), Beirut International Women Film Festival (Lebanon) are delighted to announce that their joint venture Reclaim the Frame x International has been successful in its application for support from British Council’s International Collaboration Grant.
The project, Reclaim the Frame x International, aims to support culturally diverse women & non-binary filmmakers from 5+ countries through the circulation of works, collaboration and a professional development programme. With our shared mission to increase gender diversity and inclusion in cinema, Beirut International Women Film Festival (Lebanon), Birds Eye View (UK), Flying Broom Foundation (Turkey), and Regards de femmes: festival international de film de femmes (Tunisia) will create a network which advocates and builds audiences for films by women & non-binary creatives. The aim of the network is also to help the partners learn from each other and improve how we meet the challenges of ending gender inequality and exclusion in film.
British Council’s International Collaboration Grants aim to support UK and overseas cultural partnerships to develop digital, face-to-face and hybrid artistic projects.
Reclaim the Frame x International will kickstart with an online talk as part of Beirut Women Film Festival on International Women’s Day, 8th March, featuring representatives of each of the partner festivals. Watch live and thereafter on the Birds Eye View YouTube Channel.
