Women’s Film Night: an evening of empowering films by and about women, including the film made on the Reel Women course the same week – part of Oxford International Women’s Festival

Come along to show the films you’ve been working on (finished or unfinished), show your latest film kit, network and see how films can create change.

Watch and discuss locally made films, meet other filmmakers – ranging from beginners to professionals – and hear about upcoming Film Oxford courses.

If you have videos you’d like to show, get in touch by emailing zoe@urchin.info

Films need to be under ten minutes (or show a clip from a longer film), and the filmmaker needs to come along – to tell us about the making of their film, and to ask and answer questions.

The evening is FREE – you can just turn up to watch. Please bring a snack or drink to share

Examples of Previous Open Screens at Film Oxford:
 
Thursday 8th September 2016

This month we have a special launch of Asylum Welcome’s film (27 minutes) along with the film’s award winning director Dai Richards and editor/cameraman Danny MacGregor-Gill to talk about the making of the film and answer your questions.

The film was made to help raise awareness of the realities facing asylum seekers and refugees in and around Oxford, and of the work Asylum Welcome does to support them as they try to get on here, so please invite your friends and colleagues who are interested in refugee issues to come along.

In the film, refugees living in and around Oxford tell their stories – of the horrors they fled, the challenges they faced on arrival in Britain, and the support they have received from Asylum Welcome.  Staff and volunteers at the charity talk of the work they do to keep those newly arrived here from falling into destitution, and to help those granted refugee status to adapt and get on.

 
Thursday 9th June
June’s Open Screen at Film Oxford, Catherine St, OX4 3AH
Thursday June 9th 7:30-9:30pm
 
At June’s Open Screen we will be screening Restore’s video shot on the 3 day video production course and then the evening may be slightly dominated by the many protests that have been taking place – including a film shot in Wales where a coal mine was occupied for a day, followed by several thousand people deciding to shut down a lignite mine in Germany. We will also be screening two short dramas made on the recent Shooting Video course.
 

Thursday 10th March 2016

This month we are having a Women’s Film Night where films about women or made by women will be screened. All are welcome to come to the event. It is our way of celebrating women as part of International Women’s Week.

During the first half we will be showing the film(s) about a declutterer, made on the Film Oxford Production Course which will finish on the 10th of March, a short film about the #Heathrow13 and others shorts which are booked in.

‘Seeds of Hope’  a twenty minute film about a group of women who disarmed a Hawk airplane,  will be screened during the second half.  Andrea Needham, one of the women involved in the action, will come along to answer questions and talk about her book, ‘The Hammer Blow’ launched this month. The film makers will also be there.
