I wanted to let you know about a screening at Holmfirth Film Festival of Miss Representation on 27th May, a documentary following the history of the (mis)representation of women in the media, with post-screening discussion.. The film hasn’t been screened theatrically in the UK before so we’d love it if you could circulate publicity about it to your members? Attached is an image for your use (funnily enough it’s v similar to the one on your site!).
You can read more about it here: http://holmfirthfilmfestival.co.uk/events/miss-representation-discussion/
And you can book tickets online here: http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/miss-representation-discussion-tickets-11499089085?aff=es2&rank=1, or via Holmfirth Tourist Info Centre.
Hope to see some of you at the event, and many thanks,
Film and Festivals Consultant
Well, we decided we wanted a book group. And a film society. Oh, and a song club too. That would also discuss zines, blogs, art, TV shows and other types of media and look at them from a feminist perspective. And so Read my Lips was born!
Monday 30th January 2012
Tyrannosaur (18) Paddy Consadine
Join us to watch the film Tyrannosaur at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, then stop for a discussion of the film in the upper bar afterwards.

Everyone’s welcome. Items for discussion can be anything – the only things we ask are that they are short enough for busy people to read/watch/otherwise digest, and that they are relatively available so people can get hold of them in advance of our get-togethers. They do not need to be ‘feminist’ in themselves, the idea is that we discuss things from a feminist point of view.
We hope to meet around monthly at appropriate venues in and around Huddersfield.
To make suggestions or to find out about our next get-together, drop an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll let you know the venue and what we’re going to be talking about next.
We’re starting a reading/film/art/culture discussion group! Like a reading group, there will be one managable ‘text’ each month, and we’ll get together informally in different locations to discuss it.
Angela Carter, The Bloody Chamber (click here to read on Google books)
A book of short stories – please read the title tale, and any others are a bonus!
Tuesday 20th September, 7.30pm, Upstairs bar at the Lawrence Batley Theatre, Queen Street, Huddersfield.
If you arrive before 7.30 one of us will be hanging about in the foyer to show you where to go! The venue is wheelchair accessible and refreshments both hard and soft will be available in the bar 🙂 This is a free event. Bring your ideas, plus any suggestions for future texts.
All welcome – hope to see you there!
