For 48hrs from 6:00pm
Thursday 22nd October
The F-Rating is awarded to films:
1. directed by a woman and/or
2. written by a woman
If the film also features significant women on screen in their own right it is TRIPLE F-Rated.
The rating is designed to support and promote women and redress the imbalance in the film industry.
In the top 250 films of 2015 women made up just 3.6% of all directors, 4.4% of writers, 10.4% of all producers.
Without change, we will train the next generation to recognise only white males as the protagonists and the ones in control of the cameras, scripts and budgets.
34% of this years edition of Bolton Film Festival is F-Rated, a figure we hope to see rise to around 50% in the years to come. We can only do this if we are sent the films, so spread the word, Bolton International Film Festival is proud to be F-Rated.
