A special event organised in partnership with the Jewish Historical Society of England for Jewish History Month, the theme of which for this year is Big Screen Little Screen, Jews in British Cinema and Television.

Roundtable discussion on Jewish women filmmakers, led by Dr Rachel Garfield with Dr Ruth Novaczek and Jill Daniels. The participants will discuss making films that explore Jewish identity and history. The filmmakers will show clips and discuss the films as well as what perspectives might be pertinent or of particular interest to women in filmmaking.

Dr Rachel Garfield is an artist who works in video. She also writes on contemporary and Modern art. She is Associate Professor in Fine Art at the University of Reading.

Dr Ruth Novaczek is a filmmaker who has exhibited her experimental, vernacular films and installations nationally and internationally since the 1990s. She works with écriture feminine, subjectivity and narrative, and uses found footage, live action, and personal documentation in mash-ups that challenge the ‘traditional’ avant-garde moving-image culture.

Jill Daniels is an internationally renowned filmmaker and scholar based in London. Over thirty years she has made numerous documentary films and won many international awards.
