Cinenova is a London-based feminist film and video distributor founded in 1991 from the merger of Circles and Cinema of Women, two distributors from the 1970s and 1980s. Its catalogue includes nearly 500 titles in various formats and genres (experimental, narrative, documentary, educational, etc.) dating from 1912 to 2001 and currently held by the independent and experimental film distributor LUX, based also in London.
With the collaboration of this institution, the project proposes an approach to this collection that includes the restoration of a selection of materials from Cinenova's collection and a critical and gender perspective research aimed at contributing to the knowledge and dissemination of the history of cinema made by women.
The result of this project will be shared through public programmes that will include the screening of these materials.
