Film is the most powerful medium of our age yet only 7% of all directors are female. In November a unique film festival sets out to improve that situation.

The annual Beyond Tv international film festival in Swansea is dedicating an entire evening to local directors and showing international films made by female directors.

Festival coordinator D Murphy said today
“Beyond TV will be a chance to meet local women directors and see some great short films. We also have a Q+A with the Newport director of award-winning film “Sisters-in-Law”, a story of two female judges who dispense wisdom, wisecracks & justice in Cameroon.”

The festival will host the premier of Lesbian Civilisation. The film documents the first year of Civil Partnerships in the UK and asks crucial questions about equality.
