Birds' Eye View Films
Birds’ Eye View (BEV) is a charity whose mission is to bring ever-greater audiences to films by women in order that film truly represents wider perspectives on the world. Originally a film festival, it’s now a year-round agent for change, with backing for its Reclaim The Frame project from the British Film Institute. It is a network of influencers in 10 cities at 11 cinemas, who galvanise around a new and classic films by women to bring as large an audience to them as possible. Birds’ Eye View also supports emerging female filmmakers and their allies through its Filmonomics programme, and female executives through its Future Leaders In Distribution programme, backed by Screen Skills.
BEV is proud to be partnering with TIME’S UP UK because, as Director-At-Large Mia Bays (a producer of an Oscar winner and multiple BAFTA-nominated shorts and features) states: “The up-swell of energy, anger and passion-for-change following the revelations of widespread sexual harassment and misconduct in Hollywood and beyond has strengthened our resolve to tackle gender inequality and the power imbalance in film. The time for change is now, and we take great strength and vigour from the work so many are doing to effect change, and we stand shoulder to shoulder with our allies. Time’s Up is a great way for us all to talk and connect and has been a real shot in the arm that keeps us moving forward.”
