hello everybody !

ritorno's has shifted over to summer time which means they close at 6 tonight. there was nothing on the webpage about this and i unfortunately didn't double check - anyway, we will still meet at ritorno's at 6, wait until 6.15 for everybody and then head across the road to ' park cafe ' in the park ( vasapark ).

my number is[masked] if you need to call. otherwise looking forward to seeing everybody at 6 at ritorno's :-)



Unbelievably, Stockholm currently has no women's film festival but by mid 2014, it will ! :-)

One of our members, Teresa, and I ( Mona, founder of this club ), have committed to starting the Stockholm Women's Film Festival and we would like to invite you to join us. Imagine, setting up a film festival ! And a women's film festival - a first for Stockholm ! It's going to be a great ride, join us ! You are so welcome !

What kind of people do we need ? You, actually. Men and women who are interested in film, perhaps particularly in films made by emerging women film makers, someone who has a little time to give to a unique project.

In a nutshell ?
The Stockholm Women's Film Festival will be a fantastic chance for women film makers to showcase their work and we are setting it up !

Categories ?
Short films, feature films, documentaries, animation.

Genre ?
Any and all.

Prerequisites ?
That the projects are driven by women. While both men and women can be involved in the work, projects must be driven by women directors/ producers.

So join us ! Get in on the ground floor on a really exciting project - come along to the next meeting on Wednesday 3rd July at 6pm at Ritorno cafe, Vasaparken.

Questions ? Call me, sms me, write me :[masked]

PS Don't have the time yourself but know of someone who might be interested ? Pass this info on to them. Thanx !

    Most excellent start thanks to Mona and Teresa's efforts preparing for this meeting. Thanks to both of you for already fleshing out some of the key points to address. As we all agreed, there is a need now to really focus on some key points to determine the precise goal/vision for the festival. My first question is still, what do we hope to achieve by starting this festival? Is it to promote women film makers? Is it to build awareness of the challenges female artists face in the film industry?

    A secondary goal might be to do so well, be so successful that it becomes a regular festival. See for example the approach one festival took:

    "The Women’s International Film Festival began in 2005 as a way to provide a venue to exhibit films for and about women. That one-day event presented only five films, but was extremely well received by the audience and participants."

    Just initial thoughts.
