THE VENUS COLLECTIVE TO HOST A NEW MONTHLY FILM SCREENING NIGHT THAT CELEBRATES FEMALE DIRECTORS
The Venus Collective presents Screen Queens a new monthly immersive screening night at Metal, Edge Hill Station which celebrates female directors.
The Venus Collective is a group of queer female identifying creatives based in Liverpool who programme events with the aim of making the complicated politics of feminism more accessible through popular culture references. The Screen Queens project is The Venus Collective’s first public events that will combine a celebration of female made films with talks, workshops and discussions. Other events planned by The Venus Collective include a Zine launch, club nights and body confidence workshops.
The Venus Collective want to deliver events that allow people to engage more confidently in feminism, and the issues within the movement, by generating discussions in a non judgemental, academic or intimidating environment.
The Screen Queens film programme will happen at Metal’s unique 23 seat screening room, based on platform three of Edge Hill Station. Guest are welcome to bring their own refreshments. Tickets are £6 / £8 and available via Event Brite.
