winc films films are a collective of filmmakers from the MA film making course at Kingston School of Art with members from and in the UK, Spain, Finland, Colombia, USA, Brazil, India, Italy, Cuba, Switzerland, Pakistan, Germany, China, Sri Lanka, Malta and Japan.
Founded in 2009 by Petra Niskanen, Sabela Pernas Soto, Claudia Vasquez-Raimíez and Abbe Leigh Fletcher as women’s independent collective films to travel to Cuba for Humberto Solas’ Cine Pobre No-Budget Film Festival, from which came the film El camino hacia Gibara/The Road to Gibara (2010). From 2019, to mark 10 years of the collective, new members are invited each year to join the collective.
From our original manifesto: Our aims are to tackle gender inequality through film and challenge established hierarchical modes of production by working collectively across continents. To make filmmaking more accessible to women and girls and to constructively celebrate international women’s perspectives through film.
winc films we contain multitudes is an installation of winc filmmakers’ work, a public screening and Q&A and an invitation to new members. We will be using the Stanley Picker Project Studio as both exhibition space and studio space to show work and to get together as a collective, both in person and online, to discuss new projects and plan future collaborations.
Join us for a public screening of winc films followed by a Q&A on Wednesday 18th October 5 – 7pm.
Session for students and alumni: Thursday 19th Oct 14.00-16.00
