SAGA is a new, grassroots film festival that creates a platform for women and girls to tell their own stories, to shape their own narratives and to define themselves before they are defined by others.
If you consider that 93% of directors are male, then the question must surely be: ‘Where are the women’s stories? What’s happened to them?’
Well, some of them are at SAGA. Other than creating a great volunteering experience and building community around film, SAGA is about screening these films, telling these untold stories, in all their diversity and wonderfulness.
SAGA is a way for women to tell their own stories from their own world perspective. With women and girls behind the camera, SAGA will be a festival full of surprises – expect to see lots of unusual and interesting films!
In a nutshell, SAGA is a defiantly culturally inclusive women’s film festival based on the notion that the stories of women and girls matter.
The festival includes 66 films from 18 countries. For the full programme visit the SAGA website here.
Tickets are for morning, afternoon or whole day sessions (i.e. not for individual films) and can be bought at the door. Tickets for SAGA’s Launch on Friday June 1st of June and Saturday the 2nd of June at Gallery Yampu are available on Eventbrite.
