Lis Rhodes 8 - Cinenova
A selection of titles from the Cinenova archive curated and presented by Charlotte Procter (Cinenova Working Group).
Cinenova was founded in 1991 following the merger of two feminist film and video distributors, Circles and Cinema of Women. Both organisations aimed to provide the means to support the production and distribution of women’s work and played critical roles in the creation of an independent and radical media. Since 2001, Cinenova has been looked after by volunteers dedicated to keeping the films in circulation and the collection together. The focus of the Cinenova Working Group (founded 2010) has been to critically engage with the conditions of the organisation, seeking out special exhibition and education projects. Showing the films in diverse contexts, the working group has looked at the importance of showing these films within contemporary political contexts and discussions.
