A film festival based on the island of Tiree has announced the first of its touring season picks.

Sea Change will screen a series of international films directed by women online and, if restrictions allow, in cinemas.

The programme opens on March 7 ahead of International Women’s Day with a free online showing of Misbehaviour, a 2020 comedy-drama following a group of women hatching a plot to disrupt the 1970 Miss World beauty competition.

The film, which stars Keira Knightley, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jessie Buckley and Keeley Hawes, will be followed by a Zoom Q&A with director Philippa Lowthorpe.

Jen Skinner, Director of Screen Argyll and Festival Director, said: “We love the shared experience of cinema and can’t wait to bring you these films back on the big screen, until then we are thrilled to be working with a fantastic group of people to bring you a taste of the tour online in time for IWD on the 8th March.

“We are really excited to be working with Driftwood and NEATs on our first online Q&A and in exploring the positives we can take from these online sessions, connecting rural and remote audiences with each other and enhancing screenings with special guests and activities in the future.”

The festival has also teamed up with Feminista 2021 to host their virtual tour of international short films online throughout March.

These real life stories of trailblazing, pioneering women and girls from across the world aim to inspire audiences watching at home to start planning their next big adventure.

Highlights include Wood On Water, following a group of twelve young women as they embark on a forty day wooden canoe trip into the Candian wilderness; OK Chlöe, the story of New Zealand’s youngest MP, a revolutionary millennial voice in a political system disconnected from those it represents; and Par For The Course, a super short film with a very big message about Mirna Valerio – aka The Mirnavator-, a runner who advocates for body positivity.

There will also be a screening of The Other Fab Four – the story of a different four teenagers from Liverpool who changed the face of pop music, The Liverbirds.

Laurie Mucha from Feminista will also run an online Development Lab on the imposter syndrome and will curate a bespoke programme of water-themed short films made by women which will be available online throughout May.

More announcements on the Sea Change Touring Programme will be made in the coming months.
