Cinenova is a volunteer-run organisation based in London dedicated to preserving and distributing the work of women/feminist film and video makers. It was founded in 1991 following the merger of Circles and Cinema of Women, each formed in the early 1980s. Cinenova currently distributes over 500 titles that include experimental film, narrative feature films, artists’ film and video, documentary and educational videos made from the 1920s to the present.
The festival at Kunsthalle Exnergasse introduces the film and video collection of Cinenova as well as the collective practice of its Working Group. It offers the opportunity to watch and research pivotal works from the history of feminist, black, queer and experimental film and video, and to consider together how they activate the present.
