Sea Change provides a dedicated space for women in the industry to develop professionally and personally. Set on the beautiful and remote island of Tiree time away from your inbox will bring fresh air and insight to your immediate and distant horizons.
The 2019 lab will focus on Finding Your Voice, Making Yourself Heard and Engaging New Audiences. The event consists of a development lab aimed at women in film exhibition and a public film festival, last year we had attendees from across the U.K including the BFI, Watershed in Bristol, Chapter Arts in Cardiff and the GFT. The two overarching aims are ‘how can we make change within our industry’ and ‘how can we reach new audiences for films made by women’.
The lab will be followed by a public festival. Mia Bays will speak about her career, her work with Birds Eye Film and Reclaim the Frame. Rachel Hayward will present some of her programme: Celebrating Women in Global Cinema, which she has been running at HOME this year.
Public Festival 20/21/22 September 2019
The public programme will include sessions curated by Mia and Rachel, the last film made by the iconic Agnes Varda, a new collection of shorts from the Women Over Fifty Film Festival, family films and workshops, archive films, special guests and much more including our daily swim!
We will be working with Croft and City to bring some films to their Friday and Saturday night events too.
Together we will bring about change for women in the industry and female audiences for film.
