From reel to real

Join a series of screenings and discussions dedicated to the women filmmakers of the LFMC. As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the London Filmmakers’ Co-op (LFMC), Tate Modern opens its Counter-Histories series with a programme dedicated to a rarely seen but remarkable ensemble of films – both single screen and expanded – made by women filmmakers since the 1970s in the context of the artist-led, cooperative organisation. Produced against a backdrop of growing feminist consciousness, these films built on the methods, processes and ethos associated with the Co-op to address the world outside of the projection room.

The programme opens with a screening and discussion at Tate Britain on 19 September, followed by a series of six screenings at Tate Modern from 23–25 September. Full programme details will be made available shortly.

From Reel to Real: women, feminism and the London Filmmakers’ Co-op is curated by Maud Jacquin in partnership with LUX and Tate Film with the support of FLUXUS. It is presented alongside LUX and Tate Britain’s monthly Co-op Dialogues series, which continues throughout the year.
