Women Make Film at TIFF!


It is with great pleasure and excitement that we can announce TIFF will be screening all 14 hours of Women Make Film: A Road Movie Through Cinema.

The 14 hour epic draws an alternative history of cinema through films directed exclusively by women, challenging the widely accepted and male dominated canon of cinema’s development as an art form. This new cinematic odyssey is forged using over 300 films and narrated by Tilda Swinton, Jane Fonda, Adjoa Andoh, Sharmila Tagore, Thandie Newton, Kerry Fox and Debrah Winger.

Speaking to Indewire, TIFF Docs programmer Thom Powers spoke of the film’s potential to alter common perceptions: “I think that the film is going to rewrite film history and how we understand the role of women directors.”
