Join us alongside, Bre Graham, Emma Hughes, Chloe-Rose Crabtree and Angela Hui for drinks, panel conversation and kefir making.

    The most welcoming and supportive film event I have been to for women. I was very nervous that some people wouldn’t be welcoming to chat to but everyone was so up for any kind of chat!
