Working with Knowle West Media Centre and the ‘From Her P.O.V’ project, we’re delighted to present ‘From Her P.O.V: The Screenings’.
Women in the film and television industry are under-represented in many areas. Earlier this year, 14 women began the ‘From Her P.O.V.’ course, specifically designed to give women the training and support to make their own films.
The two resulting short films have been developed by the crews from start to finish, and they are premiering at this event at Bristol’s Arnolfini. Highly original and each with their own distinct character, the films are a testament to the creativity and diversity of local filmmaking.
Each film will be followed by a Q&A with the crew, and the evening will conclude with a screening of the award-winning Mustang.

In a remote Turkish village, Lale and her four sisters are subject to scrutiny and suspicion for their ‘immoral’ behaviour. Their home consequently becomes a prison as the girls are prepared for a future of arranged marriages – but the girls’ spirit cannot be tamed so easily.
