Drunk Feminist Films
Drunk Feminist Films is a collective of women from all disciplines in Toronto who meet over cocktails to mock the gender stereotyping they see at work in Hollywood filmmaking. They host regular sold out public screenings as well as webisodes and other online content with outlets including CBC and VICE. As their mandate goes, "At Drunk Feminist Films, we would rather laugh than cry our way through Hollywood representations of gender, race, sexuality, class and other aspects of identity. Drunk Feminist Films produces lighthearted events and media that use cocktail-fuelled feminist commentary to tease apart the tropes of mainstream movies. The Collective has prepared a special video introduction for the Winnipeg screening which compiles some of their funniest episodes and sharply satirical analysis. Featuring much laughter and clips from The Bodyguard, Crossroads, Save the Last Dance, Gone Girl, Love Actually, A League of their Own, Twilight and Burlesque, and playing with the short film Snapperdoodle by local artists Arlea Ashcroft and Andrea von Wichert.
Presented in partnership with the Winnipeg Film Group
