The film programme will be available for viewing from Sunday 26 April through Sunday 10 May 2020.

Thank you. Your support means a lot to us.

Note: This is a different programme than the films we screened in March 2020. That evening proved to be very popular, so we have collaborated with Feminista to put together another selection of films that we think you'll love!
