NOW SHOWING: UNDERWIRE FESTIVAL 2017

Dedicated to “celebrating the raw cinematic talents of women”, Underwire is the UK’s only film festival that focuses on the breadth of screen crafts. Whilst much of the rest of the film world focuses on directors, women are also featured here for their outstanding work as animators, cinematographers, composers, sound designers, editors, production designers and screen writers. Which gives rise to a brilliantly eclectic programme.

Anna Bogutskaya, Festival Director, said of the talent in this year’s lineup:

“No one can ever say again that there’s not women working across the whole spectrum of film. They’re here. They’re awesome. Hire them. We’re pointing you in the right direction.”

SINGLE-O EXHIBIT

If we could only see just one, it would be:

  • THE BOOK OF BIRDIE + Q&A (24 NOV 18:45, Curzon Aldgate), fresh from the Sitges Film Festival, co-writer/director Elizabeth E. Schuch, costume designer/co-writer Anami Tara Shucart and cinematographer/VFX producer Konstantinos Koutsoliotas will talk about their “haunting and lyrical” film.
