    The LFFF is an independent festival set up in 2012, which celebrates feminist films past and present from international women directors.
    It aims to support women filmmakers in the male-dominated film industry, to get women’s stories out there, and to inspire feminist discussion and activism. The Archive section offers short clips of many of the films included in the programme of each edition of the festival, which combines feminist classics with a selection of current international titles. For example, award-winning A Place of Rage (Pratibha Parmar, 1991) which is a celebration of African American women and their achievements, featuring interviews with Angela Davis, June Jordan, and Alice Walker; Cycologic, which follows urban planner Amanda Ngabirano’s campaign for a cycling lane in her city, and the plea of other women cyclists who negotiate the restrictions imposed on women by society; Ouaga Girls, which shows a group of young women who are training to be car mechanics in Burkina Faso’s capital, Ouagadougou.

    This is a unique database of poems written in response to the Lancashire Cotton Famine of 1861-65. Many of the poems are by the mill workers most affected by the famine and are written in the Lancashire dialect. The poems, published by the local newspapers of that time, are presented here with a commentary, audio recitations and musical performances which draw directly from them. This is an ongoing project of special interest for literary scholars and historians. There are some 100 poems collated so far, of which some are of a high quality, according to Dr Simon Rennie. For example, a Work, Lads, and Think by wool sorter Williffe Cunliam. The database can be searched by date, publisher and place of publication.

    The cinema as a place of popular mass entertainment towered over Liverpool in the first half of the last century. This left a rich legacy, not only of picture house buildings, but also of the pictures made for an insatiable and loyal audience. This site is devoted to collecting and preserving stories and images from the Golden Age of the Silver Screen in Liverpool: old black and white photographs, posters, handbills, programmes and lobby cards together with interviews and essays bear witness to the important role that cinema played in the lives of the working people of Liverpool. Some of the gems included are: an interview with filmmaker Alex Cox, who visits the Futuristic Cinema and recounts his memories of the first film he ever watched there; an interview with actor Ricky Tomlinson; and the oral histories from the projectionists, usherettes and organ players. The website is a ‘living archive’ which means that anyone with a story about cinemas in Liverpool is welcomed to share it.
