    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.

The site also features a historical timeline of key events in artists’ film and video from 1900- present day, and virtual tours created by leading curators and writers (such as novelist Ali Smith on Margaret Tait). The site has not been updated since 2009 so some of the links may be out of date but the core content of the resource remains valuable and relevant.

    This site archives the feminist film fanzine, or ‘video chainletter’ created by Miranda July and a network of female filmmakers during the 1990s and early 2000s. Originally called ‘Big Miss Movieola’, then changed to ‘Joanie4Jackie’ following legal threats from the owner of the Movieola brand, the project began when July issued a ‘challenge and a promise’ to other filmmakers: ‘Lady, you send me your movie and I’ll send you the latest Big Miss Moviola Chainletter Tape’. In addition to digitised versions of the chainletter tapes themselves, the site features extensive contextual material, including posters, letters, press, documentary films about the project and interviews with participants.
