Pioneering Women

 Presented in association with the National Film and Sound Archive

 

Co-curated by Alexandra Heller-Nicholas

Following on from last year’s popular Gaining Ground program of women filmmakers working in New York in the 1970s and 1980s, we present a selection of amazing and sometimes under-seen Australian should-be classics directed by women and made in the 1980s and early 1990s.

To read an in-depth dossier of this program, including articles written by MIFF Critics Campus participants past and present, visit Senses of Cinema.
