Birds Eye View

Birds Eye View is a creative platform for women filmmakers. We launched the UK's first major women's film festival in 2005 across London's leading film venues, showing a tip-top programme of stunning and inspirational features, documentaries and short films from around the world. Each year we develop our programme with more outstanding films and innovative cross-arts events, and now we're equipping the next generation to break new ground through our technical and creative training programmes. <br /><br />Women make up only 7% film directors and 12% screenwriters. In a world so influenced by the medium of film, that's a crazy and concerning imbalance. <br /><br />From 8–17 March 2011, Birds Eye View returns with our seventh annual celebration of women filmmakers. The Festival programme – announced by actress Rosamund Pike – is an electric and eclectic showcase of the most inspiring, enchanting and challenging work by women across the world. Opening on the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day, Birds Eye View 2011 takes place at BFI Southbank, Southbank Centre, the ICA and other venues across London. <br /><br />Join us as we keep celebrating the work of cutting edge creative women from around the world. You'll be amazed...
