Our online talks series explores how photography archives can both document the past and inspire the present. 

We are back with a new programme for Women's History Month, bringing together a range of brilliant speakers to discuss feminist film and photography. 


Special Preview: Independent Miss Craigie | 24 March | 6.30pm | Online  

Independent Miss Craigie is a feature-length biographical documentary exploring the life and work of filmmaker, writer and feminist scholar Jill Craigie (1911 – 99).

Craigie was one of the first British women to direct documentaries. Exploring topics from equal pay to artists at work, her films tackled new subjects for cinema through a unique blend of drama, polemic and often humour.

Join us for a special preview screening of Independent Miss Craigie, followed by a discussion with the filmmakers Lizzie Thynne and Hollie Price.
