The FFC is currently screening:

 


In collaboration with HERFLIX we are proud to open the month up with the award winning Israeli film Gett by Ronit Elkabetz and her brother Shlomi Elkabetz.

Gett was selected to be screened as part of the Directors' Fortnight section of the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.


What members say about Gett:
'GETT takes a  universal theme, where systems in place repress society, and hold in place the socially constructed norms that no longer serve. 
Uniquely shown through characters we get to know only through their struggles with the system, rather than knowing their everyday lives.
A very relatable film for anyone who, at some time in their lives, has felt they were living within the visible or invisible confines of a blueprint that confuses and frustrates them and they are fighting to get out of. '

 'Watch GETT because it puts into question where is the power and what is power and who has the power, power in the sense of freedom, security, authority, and what power means to each individual person.'  


Prayers For The Stolen by Tatiana Huezo

FFC Mindset Calendar:

Every month has a different focus, we have conversations, events, video's and posts around each topic. 


Why join the Female Film Club?

  • Get accountability. The FFC is designed to ensure you stay on track. By engaging with our community and showing up in the events you'll be accountable and consistently work towards your goals.
  • Get support. In the FFC you immediately join an international community where you'll be heard and understood by creatives just like you. Come on a good day, bad day and everything else in between. Our sisterhood is here to lift you up and celebrate you, being a creative doesn't have to be lonely and isolating.
  • We're personal. Our intimate events allow our members to connect on a deeper level while working on their personal growth. Each member gets heard, which ensures real connections and in-depth conversations take place.
  • We value your time. We get that you've got a lot going on (hello children and side-jobs!) but we make sure you don't have to choose. All our events are child friendly so feel free to bring your child along or log in while you're prepping dinner.
  • We're online. This means that you can level up constantly and don't have to spend money travelling, buying drinks or organise a baby sitter. All our sessions are guided and with a small group so you don't have to be an extrovert or spend more effort than necessary (hello sweatpants and lipstick hack ;) ). 
  • Online distribution with Herflix. This is an opportunity to get online distribution for your (short and feature) films which took hard work to make and deserve to be seen. All members will be able to submit their films for consideration, as long as it completed the film festival circuit it will be eligible for distribution.

ABOUT US:

The Female Film Club was founded by filmmakers Liza and Nicole at the start of the pandemic in 2020. Although the film industry came to a halt, they were keen to find a way to stay in touch with filmmakers worldwide and keep each other inspired and accountable. In August 2020 they launched the Female Film Club as we know it, an online community and app where filmmakers from all over the world learn together, get challenged and have fun with likeminded creatives. The FFC reminds their members on a daily basis: ‘Your voice matters, make it heard. ‘

FAQ:

How does the Female Film Club work if I don’t have time?

Most of our events are between 45-60 min. Our FFC app makes the club easy to access anytime, anywhere whenever you have a min or two. We don’t have any clutter/advertisement on our app so you won’t waste time scrolling through uninteresting junk to find valuable information. If you have time to scroll through social media, you can scroll through the FFC and get one step closer to your successful feature instead ;). 

Will the FFC be worth my money?

We’re so confident it will, we’ll give you a first 2 week subscription to check it out yourself. You can always cancel your membership before your payment is due.

I am trans/genderqueer/non binary, can I join the platform?

Of course! This platform is not only for cis-gender woman but EVERY WOMXN or non-binary filmmaker is more than welcome to be a member! We are committed to making the club as inclusive as possible and welcome any feedback. Our mission is to work towards a film industry that celebrates ALL humans and are willing to listen, learn, and amplify the voices that have been silenced for too long.
In addition, if you are a male-identifying filmmaker that would love to level up with us, our doors are open.

I’m a mother with a young child and very busy, how can this work?

We’ve created the club with you in our minds and have therefor decided that every meeting is child-friendly, you can bring your child along and we’ll make sure that everyone watches their languages and the topics are appropriate when there are children around. This way you don't have to choose, we'll make sure you can do it all!

I have many female film connections already, what can the Female Film Club add?

That’s great! The Female Film Club is more than just a networking platform, we are here to get you accountability and to support your growth. We're an international community that supports and cheers you on a good day, a bad day, and everything in between. 

 Why is it all women? 

It's no surprise that there is a big gender disparity in the film industry. We are here to ensure that women don't hold themselves back from making a successful feature (because there's never enough of them!). We have created a safe space where sensitive conversations can be brought up and discussed, particularly female specific problems as there is a lack of support for women in the film industry.
We still value and champion brilliant films made by men and will recommend those films who honour the female gaze.

I am not technical, will this be tricky?

You’re speaking to the most A-technical women, because of this we made our membership platform extremely easy to use, if we can do it, so can you! On top of that we’ll guide you through any problems and you can always email us. As long as you’ll have a smartphone or laptop you’ll be absolutely fine.

 I am too shy to network and do it with video

Don’t worry, this is exactly why many women join the Female Film Club. You see how comfortable you’ll feel after just one meetup and how welcoming our members are. We’ll make sure you’ll feel relaxed and heard. The sessions are being led, and there is no pressure at all on the amount you’ll speak.

Walk With Me* (2016) by member Lisa Ohlin
*Screened and discussed with Ohlin in the FFC, members can watch the replay.

My English isn’t great

With 35 different nationalities in the club, no one expects others to be fluent in English. Everyone in our community is respectful and we LOVE having so many women speaking different languages.
Google translate and join the conversation in the chat is always an option, perhaps there are more members that speak your language and Nicole and Liza speak 9 languages combined so there might even be a chance we can translate for you!

I can watch films on Netflix + Amazon, why do I need the Female Film Club?

The algorithm might not push those great indie films forward that can really enrich your life, we filter them for you and provide you with resources about the film so you know the backstory of the female filmmakers.

I don’t just want to watch indie films

We’re choosing a broad range of female directed, written and produced films and because of the budget many female filmmakers get, this results often in them being (prestigious award winning) indie films. These films will enrich your filmmaker career and open your mind in ways that the average blockbuster won't.
