British Films 1997 – 2006

In 2006, The BFI and the U3A organised jointly a study day on the subject of Older Women in Feature Films. The day consisted of a panel discussion on the representation of older women in film, the launch of a BFI on-line “Older Women in Film Guide” and a viewing of ‘The Whales of August” introduced by Dr. Josephine Dolan. Screen One of the NFT was filled by U3A members who had taken part in an audience survey and who engaged in a lively discussion. The guide contains a review of the literature on the subject, a report on a U3A members’ audience survey on eight films and extracts of reviews of the films.
