Women and Silent Britain
Jess McCabe // 5 November 2009
The BFI is holding a study day on women’s role in the film industry back in the days of silent movies.
This study day will consider all aspects of writing for or about the screen by the large number of women involved in the British cinema industry of the silent era, whether as screenwriters, critics, columnists, publicists, or authors of source novels and plays. The day consists of screenings from the BFI National Archive, talks and workshops, followed by a screening of the rarely seen silent classic The Constant Nymph.Tickets £10 (day only), £15 including The Constant Nymph (Members pay £1.40 less)
