A new film season entitled ‘For All The Brave Women’ starts in Saffron Walden this weekend.
Saffron Screen is hosting a series of films as part of the season over successive Sundays in September and October.
Running from September 26 until October 17, the season will screen four new British and Irish films about brave young women who stand up to society for themselves, their friends and families, and for what they believe in.
The aim is to showcase female talent both in front of and behind the camera, and bring women’s stories to the fore.
Programming manager Rebecca del Tufo said: “We hope audiences will enjoy this specially curated season of films about the experiences of contemporary young women.
"As an independent cinema, the team at Saffron Screen want to give a voice to everyone in our community.
"This Sunday night season promises enrichment and inspiration for everyone.”
