The MUFF Society’s Reel Girl Talk screening series and Black Women Film! Canada are proud to present an exciting new showcase of short films made by Black female filmmakers.
Creators from across Canada were invited to submit their short films for consideration for Reel Girl Talk and Black Women Film! Canada Short Film Night. The selected films will be announced soon, but all films considered were directed by a Black woman who is a Canadian citizen or resident.
Join us at Imagine Cinemas Carlton on November 8 to see the selected films. Following the screening, Black Women Film! Canada will host a short panel discussion with the filmmakers.
— ABOUT REEL GIRL TALK:
Reel Girl Talk is a discussion-based spinoff of The MUFF Society, a feminist screening series that is based in Toronto and champions women in film both on and off screen. In addition to screening films made by and/or about women, Reel Girl Talk encourages critical analysis of these works and the way they present issues these communities are facing. After each Reel Girl Talk screening, women from varying age groups, backgrounds, and experiences will be invited to compare and contrast the film they have just seen with their own lives.
