“This year, Seen & Heard Film Festival comes to ACMI to give female filmmakers a world-class stage to showcase their work – the festival will be bigger than ever before. Over the four day festival, running from November 13 – 16, there will be 47 films playing, 19 of which are Australian premieres, and many of those direct from Berlinale, Tribeca, Sundance, Busan, and the London Film Festival.” – ACMI (read more)
launched in Sydney in 2009 as a non-profit film festival by Lucy Randall with the view to promote women’s filmmaking and bring to light industry prejudices that may not be so clear to the consumer. For the first time this year, Melbourne audiences are invited to join us in taking that small, but necessary, step towards female filmmakers being both Seen & Heard. We promote the message that films made by women are not just for women: they are wonderfully rich films that should be seen by everyone. Trust us, you’re in for an exciting program of films that are as diverse as they are visually stunning.” – Seen & Heard (read more) ‘Female filmmakers: No need for the fuss’
