Screen QueensSupporting The Venus Collective through our Propeller Awards
We're pleased to introduce Film Hub North's latest Propeller Awards recipients: The Venus Collective.
With support from Film Hub North, this Liverpool-based group are taking over the screening room at Metal for their Screen Queens programme - a series of immersive events that celebrates and champions female directors. The season will see The Venus Collective transform Metal's space into an early noughties bedroom - think Groovy Chick, beaded curtains, bean bags and Dream Phones - inviting audiences in a space of collective sanctuary where they can consider the films shown and the discussions they prompt.
Their first event is The Virgin Suicides - Sofia Coppola's drama of teenage travails within the domestic space - on 28 September. The screening will be introduced by Dr Sian Lincoln (Liverpool John Moores University) who will discuss her work on 'bedroom culture;' exploring the role and significance of the bedroom as a key space through which teenage lives and identities play out.
The Venus Collective present their Screen Queens season with support from our Propeller Awards. For more information on how we can support your projects, visit our Exhibition Funding homepage.
