Kerala to Get First Women Film Society

Women Film Society

Kerala, which once witnessed the most celebrated film society movement in the country, is now all set to get its first women film society. The Kerala Sthree Padana Kendram, a non-profit organisation which focuses on research and awareness projects on gender sensitive issues, will launch the 'Female Film Society' here tomorrow.

The society will organise film festivals featuring women-centric movies and films, scripted and helmed by women directors across the world, KSPK members said. The annual Female Film Festival, organised by the Padana Kendram for the last few years, would be conducted by the newly formed society in a more vast canvas from next year, they said.

Padana Kendram Director P S Sreekala said though film societies have been common in the country for many decades, a platform exclusively focusing on the works of women filmmakers is very rare.
