Previously at the ICA - Seasons
7 Mar 2008 – 14 Mar 2008
Birds Eye View returns to the ICA with another programme of features, documentaries and shorts from women all over the world. This year includes the UK premiere of Expired starring Samantha Morton, Cannes Jury Prize winner Persepolis, London Film Festival Critics' Choice Unrelated and the Berlinale Special Mention Hotel Very Welcome. The festival also includes dinner with the Pakistani president, bad-girl Japanese courtesans, Bella Freud's guide to the world of fashion and film, a showcase of the best new music videos, and a new strand for this year, Innovation, exploring interactive mobile phone art and video games. In the ICA bar there's an open-screen short film challenge, live film editing and a closing night party. Plus we have training sessions and panel discussions where film gurus talk about cinematography, screenwriting, special effects and survival for women film-makers in a male-dominated industry.
