Oscar Winning Producer Praises New Birmingham Women’s Film Festival

The inaugural edition of 6 of the Best Fest is a celebration of new films by 6 UK women filmmakers at the Mockingbird Cinema, Birmingham, UK on the weekend of 20th-22nd January 2017. Hashtag: #6BestFest.

Oscar winning producer Mia Bays – Director-at-Large of women’s film organisation Birds Eye View said

We are excited to be heading to Mockingbird Cinema in Birmingham, it’s a key location for great film programming, and their ‘6 of the Best Fest’ is a terrific initiative.  THE INCIDENT is a film we released, so we are happy this gets a prime slot, and the other films – such as LIGHT YEARS and ADULT LIFE SKILLS – are films we admire enormously. We hope more cinemas take up this idea and screen some of the best female-led UK films of the year side-by-side.

Other great films include PREVENGE – the directorial debut of Alice Lowe (Sightseers, Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, Hot Fuzz) and THE LEVELLING by Hope Dickson Leach and COUPLE IN A HOLE starring Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones, The Witch) and Paul Higgins (In the Loop, Utopia).

Four of the films will include Q & A sessions with directors or producers.

The festival is curated by Brendan O’Neill of Stickleback Cinema.

Tickets are just £7 or £30 for a great value full festival pass.
