Halloween is always huge. Here’s a hot tip for a more sober and cerebral weekend than running around in a mangle with glitter and fake blood on your face. It’s the second instalment of the Feminist Film Festival.
Given the weekend that’s in it there’s a dose of horror going down on Saturday in the New Theatre with a discussion around one of our favorite cinematic ghost stories of recent years. We’ve blogged about the Kickstarter funded wonder that is the Babadook before. It sits atop our own personal best of horror lists.
Other tips include a documentary about the BBC’s Radiophonic workshop goddess Delia Derbyshire, the sculptress of sound that put the wonk into the Dr Who soundtrack.
Of course there’s the main documentary feature Shes Beautiful When She’s Angry too.
A feminist film festival sounds absolutely terrifying.
