Film Course: "Women Make Film"

Activity: Conference/talk/lecture/symposium/speech/workshop, etcEvent organized by non-HKBU units


Almost twenty years in the making and running at fourteen hours, Mark Cousins’ epic documentary, Women Make Film, can be described as a passion project. It is an in-depth and exhaustive exploration of a selection of works by women directors spanning across twelve decades and five continents. The documentary is a celebration of international women filmmakers as well as a masterclass on the art and craft of cinema. It weaves together over 700 clips drawn from various films into one cohesive whole structured by forty topic-orientated chapters that explore themes, genres, and techniques used in cinema to graphy. Learn about the art and craft of filmmaking through the lens of the world’s greatest women directors with this series of seven film classes at M+ Cinema. Each film class explores five or six chapters of Women Make Film and consists of two sixty-minute screenings, each followed by a discussion with a filmmaker and a critic.
I have been invited by the M+ Cinema (West Kowloon Cultural District) to collaborate with them to distribute the free tickets to our MFA students for attending the screenings and Film classes from 2 July - 13 Aug 2022.
