An Actress's Take on All-Things-Screen

Every Woman has her Day

Happy International Women’s Day!

Today is all about celebrating women and promoting equality. Of course my angle on this is through the medium of your screens. So I immediately thought about the best films on female empowerment. Not doing anything tonight? Give one a watch. Go on, it’ll make you feel good. Below are a list of my favourites.

But FIRST. Check out your local independent cinema to see whether they have Women’s Day-inspired events happening. You can watch the latest film Certain Women for example. At my favourite cinema, Brixton Ritzy, you can help celebrate by going to watch Cameraperson….

Also on around London:

There is a special screening of Suffragette at The Fox Pub organised by Talkies Cinema – 7.30pm

Stanley’s Film Club is screening Queen of Katwe (with board games) – 8pm

Filmmaker Gurinder Chadha will be giving a talk at Sands Film Studios – 8.30pm

Don’t forget about the Women of the World Festival running until 14th March. Featuring some film and television events

And many more…..(let me know what you go to or watch!)

Now for films at home – here are my suggestions if you want to get cosy on the sofa..
