As part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the London Film-makers’ Co-operative (LFMC), this film programme, which opens Tate Modern’s Counter-Histories series, explores the unique contribution of the women filmmakers associated with the LFMC to both experimental and feminist film.
Friday, September 23, 2016 (All day) to Sunday, September 25, 2016 (All day)
Our celebration of the 50th anniversary of the London Filmmakers’ Co-operative continues with this evening programmed by Anna La Thew and Steve Farrer.
"Steve and I were elected at the 1980 AGM and a life long friendship began. The 1980's were the start of film-makers being actively encouraged to publicise, exhibit, distribute and courier Co-op films, in person, internationally. We were committed to the Co-operative as an act of romantic resistance, its manifesto, its openness, its freedom and a lot of us were from up North.
