‘Diamond Women’ grew from working with local community organisations over the summer of 2020- notably Cample Line, Catstrand and Driftwood Cinema. Women filmmakers, from directors to female crew members, can struggle to find a foothold in the industry. Even when they do, they are all too often overlooked in award ceremonies. We want to address that imbalance.
Through our season of film, we will highlight the talent, determination and courage of women working in the screen industry today. We are also taking this opportunity to look at creative women who have links with Dumfries and Galloway, as well as meeting those starting out in their careers.
We have curated a selection of titles, including documentaries, animation, dramas, and horror. Many of the features have not been screened or enjoyed in Dumfries & Galloway before, and we are so excited to share them with you.
Whet your appetite for cinema both contemporary and classic, and above all, shine a light on the brilliant work of women filmmakers. Come with us on our journey as we honour and celebrate Diamond Women;
Beautiful, dazzling, and indestructible.
We’ll be adding a new film each week of the season so pop over to southwestmediafactory.org to see details of all the films we are showing in the season and read more about Diamond Women.
