What was the REBEL DYKES FILM CLUB?
We ran a social online Rebel Dykes Film Club twice monthly from May to August 2020. We shared Dyke Cult Classic films from or set in 1980s and 90s. It was a COVID initiative to help with isolation amongst dykes of all generations. We received funding from Pitch Pot at BFI Film Hub Scotland.
The events were social, free, accessible, chilled out and drop in.
Film Club was for dykes and allies of all genders, all generations (over 18).
