Join a film discussion online

Monday 8 March at 7pm

Free event

Electric Palace volunteer Glenys Jacques invites you to join her for a lively film discussion open to all:

"It is a great pleasure to present this wonderful group of short films for the 2021 International Women’s Day Festival.

This year’s theme set by Feminista Film Festival is CHOOSE TO CHALLENGE. It's a great idea on so many levels: How do we challenge ourselves, our community or workplace? How do we catch unconscious decision making which puts us back into conventional gender norms? How do we actively bring diversity into our lives?

The films bring inspiration for these and other thoughts, which I hope you will share with me at our Zoom event (details below).

Enjoy the films!" - Glenys Jacques
