Celebrating feminism and the mighty off and onscreen power of ladies, Girls on Film Festival have created yet another outstanding program featuring women who kick some serious butt. Inspired by Riot Grrrl culture, GOFF brings together a three-day program of zines, live gigs and of course, stellar films (with a little activism thrown in for good measure).
Films in this year’s program include cult classics, underrated gems and feminist favourites. Roller derby fans will get a kick out of the Drew Barrymore-directed Whip It and documentary In The Turn, or if soccer is more your jam, hit up British favourite Bend It Like Beckham. Classics like Thelma and Louise, Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion, and Desperately Seeking Susan will be making an appearance, and if you’re after some solid activism docos, check out Black Panther Woman and She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry. There are honestly too many great films to list here, so check out their program for more info.
