City’s first Feminist Film Fest to open this weekend
16 June 2017
Scheduled for the next three Sundays, Phnom Penh’s very first Feminist Film Festival will showcase a selection of local and international films, while providing a range of perspectives on the feminist movement in the Kingdom.

The festival is the brainchild of a group of five female expatriates living in Phnom Penh – Olivia Dehnavi, Lara Goodwin, Charis Uster, Sami Shearman and Edain Jamison. What began as a discussion on the availability of feminist events and films in the city materialised into a full-blown festival.
“Women are so massively underrepresented in films [in general] and when they are represented, it is quite negative or stereotypical or cliched. We wanted to show films that showed an alternative to that, with complex characters that can serve as role models to women,” Goodwin says.

The festival is split into three themes, one for each Sunday: “Dismantling Stereotypes”, “Confronting Gender-based Violence”, and “LGBTIQ Women in Cambodia”.

Guest speakers at the festival this Sunday include members of the women-only mototour guide company, Motogirltours.
Other than screening films from both international and Cambodian filmmakers, there will also be panel discussions in which Cambodian women speakers share their experiences in accordance with each theme.
These include Sunday’s panel in which representatives from Motogirltours will discuss their experience working in the male-dominated moto tour service sector

Nothing wrong with Feminism, so long as the sweet little dears know their place and do not take their "message" seriously.
