WIFTI Worldwide Webinar: In the Director’s Chair Sits a Woman
This webinar is presented by our sisters at WIFT Israel. On November 16, 6pm CET Osnat Bukofzer will be in conversation with Smadar Zamir about her work and latest film ‘In the Director’s Chair Sits a Woman’.
Smadar learned about and experienced the difficulties faced by female filmmakers attempting to make films in Israel, a country with ostensibly modern characteristics, but it turns out that our patriarchy has a greater influence on us than we anticipated. Will this knowledge enable us to create in different ways?
Smadar Zamir is a filmmaker, activist and lecturer. A graduate with honors from the department of Cinema and TV Arts in Sapir College, and an MA in Gender Studies from Bar Ilan University. Her final project film, the short fiction film BETWEEN THE LINES aired on Channel2/Israel and travelled the film festival circuit. In The Director’s Chair Sits A Woman is her debut film.
