 The F*Word is a BCK initiative and aims to create a chain of emerging female* filmmakers. Last year, in the frame of #3BCKFS, 12 emerging Balkan female filmmakers and academics, from 7 countries of the wider Balkan region, during a 4-hour online roundtable, discussed the representations of gender, female body politics, work environments, wages and job opportunities. The audience had the chance to watch 3 min. excerpts of the roundtable participants’ work, alongside a written Q&A. More info here:
