Birds Eye View launched the UK's first major film festival to showcase women's work (a bird's perspective, geddit?) back in 2005, a response to the fact that only 7% of directors are female. Through feature films, documentaries, shorts, bring a baby screenings and workshops, the world of women's cinema blazes onto London's screens with a programme of inspiring, diverse and challenging films from around the globe. A good place to start is the collection of feature films where you'll find everything from harsh Argentinian tragedy in La Rabia through to light-hearted French comedy Grown-Ups and the UK premiere of Snow, which won the Cannes International Critics' Week Grand Prix 2008. There's also a focus on sex on screen; the BFI Southbank is hosting the silent but deadly Vamp films with original live scores and The Femme Fatale season. featuring 18 Hollywood film noir classics with fabulous performances from the likes of Ava Gardner, Marilyn Munroe and Faye Dunaway. Don't miss it!
