About the event[edit | edit source]

Also here:

Imagine if you looked up your favourite film online and found… nothing. That's the case for far too many classics of feminist film.

The first ICA wiki-a-thon features a Salon with academics, filmmakers and curators. Chaired by moving image artist Sarah Turner, speakers include Elinor Cleghorn, Elizabeth Cowie, Sophie Mayer, and Lucy Reynolds.

This is a chance to further and exchange knowledge of feminist film and film theory. Bring a laptop and determination to shape history. A closed workshop will take place before the Friday Salon to post entries on Wikipedia.

Followed by a 5pm screening of She Must Be Seeing Things (Sheila McLaughlin, 1987).
