Birds Eye View

Birds Eye View celebrates & supports women in film.

Founded as a short film event in 2002, we registered as a charity in 2004, launched the UK’s first major women’s film festival in 2005, and are now developing year-round activity with our First Weekenders Club, BEV Labs, touring programme and online community.

The international film festival takes place across central London in March showing a range of stunning feature films, shorts and documentaries all made by women. Alongside the film programme are a host of events that showcase female talent across the arts including live musical performances to classic silent movies and cross-arts events that unite film with the fashion, music and games industries. The festival also runs masterclasses and training events with top female talent, networking sessions, youth screenings plus fantastic parties!

Only 7% of films directors and 12% of screenwriters are women. Birds Eye View exists in direct response to these low statistics to celebrate, promote and develop the work of outstanding creative women from around the world. Backed by a number of celebrities including Joanna Lumley, Jerry Hall, Gurinder Chadha and Mike Figgis Birds Eye View is the UK's most exciting, dynamic and important celebration of female creativity and excellence across the arts and film industries.
