A 2018 report from the Centre for the Study of Women in Television and Film revealed that 94 per cent of the top 250 films at the domestic box office used male composers. Of the top 100 fiction films at the box office every year from 2007 to 2017, only 16 female composers were hired, in comparison to 1,218 men.

Women are being largely unheard in the world of film composing so as part of Filmic20 join Watershed in Bristol throughout April as they present a season of films scored by some of cinema’s most outstanding female composers, leading the way at the forefront of their craft. Brilliant.
