Swarming The Castle @ The Floating Cinema, Sep 23 – 25

23 September 2016

The Swarming the Castle screening programme is taking place at London’s Floating Cinema in Mile End Park, opening September 23 and running to September 25.

The weekend will be packed full of screenings, workshops and festivities that celebrate contemporary feminism “from Riot Grrrls to punk hijabs, feminist zines to Bollywood subversions.” The opening night will kick off with DJs from ResisDance, a female, trans and non-binary collective who raise money for radical groups by performing, and a screening of work by Evan Ifekoya, as well as Born in Flames by the American filmmaker Lizzie Borden.

Over the course of the weekend, mocktails and cocktails will be available at the Herbal Barge with a line up of screenings to continue, as well as booked workshops ranging in topics from self-care to zine-making, coding and a Does Masculinity Matter discussion.

See the Floating Cinema website for details.**
