Feminist Film Festival

The New Theatre, Thursday 16th November - Saturday 18th November 2017

Dublin Feminist Film Festival is an annual event at The New Theatre (all profits go to Sasane Nepal). The 4th DFFF will run in November 2017.

You might ask why we need to promote and celebrate women in film (great filmmakers as well as great female characters). Well, here’s some food for thought…

*Of the top 2,000 biggest grossing films over the past 20 years…

• Women accounted for only 13% of the editors, 10% of the writers and just 5% of the directors
• More than three-quarters of the crew have been men, while only 22% were women
• Visual effects, usually the largest department for big feature films, had an average of only 17.5% of women, while music had just 16%, and camera and electricals were, on average, 95% male

**In the top grossing films of 2013 women accounted for…

• 15% of all protaganonists
• 29% of major characters
• 30% of all speaking parts
• The majority of female characters were in their 20s (26%) and 30s (28%). The majority of male characters were in their 30s (27%) and 40s (31%)
• A higher proportion of male than female characters had an identifiable occupational status. 78% of male characters but only 60% of female characters had an identifiable job/occupation
• Female characters were more likely than male characters to have an identifiable marital status. 46% of female characters but 58% of male characters had an unknown marital status
