Kick-Ass Women Panel

Representing the female voice in genre film


Kick-Ass Women Panel

From Revenge to Prevenge and from Raw to Wonder Woman, female filmmakers and female protagonists are having a moment. As the Imagine 2018 program also shows, the female voice in genre film is solid, diverse and wonderfully genre-bending. For our kick-ass women panel, we’ve invited a few of this year’s awesome female filmmakers and experts to share their experiences, challenges and perspectives regarding the current status of women in genre film, both in front of and behind the camera. Afterwards, hang around for a special kick-ass women double bill with extended Q&A's. Featuring: Hedwig van Driel (film journalist), Issa Lopez (dir. Tigers Are Not Afraid) and more to be announced.

Featuring: Issa Lopez (director Tigers Are Not Afraid), Veronica Kedar (director Family) and Maryn Wilkinson (Assistant Professor Film Studies at UvA and specialised in feminist film theory). Moderated by Hedwig van Driel (filmj ournalist).
