During 2021-2022 Society of Cinema concentrates on independent film production practices and feminist filmmaking strategies worldwide and in the local context. Aiming to strengthen the connections of the local scene with other filmmaking groups and film scholars internationally; our program engages with, analyses, discusses, and counteracts (yet to be renounced) effects of its structures. We are taking a practice-based, yet research- centric approach through workshops, creative programming and critical publications.

Society of Cinema is a collaboration between Museum of Impossible Forms and Kenno Filmi.

The series is curated by Danai Anagnostou in conversation with Giovanna Esposito Yussif.
