The Female Lens: An Illuminatrix Showcase

Scroll down

London Short Film Festival

With women making up less than 7% of cinematographers in the UK, female DoP collective illuminatrix was founded in 2016 as a go-to resource to discover working women in the field quickly and easily, no excuses.

We turn focus to this chronic underrepresentation and the brilliant women of the illuminatrix roster, looking to the resulting female gaze when women helm the camera in an eclectic cross section of shorts. Featuring a healthy handful of festival alumni from across the years, illuminatrix and their DoPs will join us post-screening in Q&A. 78’
