Live in the last of our series of six episodes from HOME Manchester, Anna reviews a vintage year of stellar guests and compelling conversation for Girls On Film, and looks ahead at what 2020 has in store. With Sight & Sound's 50 films of the year topped by Joanna Hogg's The Souvenir, and initiatives from the F-Rating to Bumble's Female Film Force going from strength to strength, we're here to help drive the vanguard of female filmmaking into the new year. We sit down with BIFA-winning and BAFTA-nominated director Harry Wootliff to discuss her strikingly intimate debut feature Only You. Joined too by Doctor Who screenwriter and playwright Joy Wilkinson, the panel discusses the challenges writer-directors still face in bringing complex women to the screen. Clarisse Loughrey, chief film critic at The Independent, also joins Anna to review new releases Charlie's Angels, Judy & Punch, and Marriage Story as we approach awards season. In a festive film twist, our three guests bring their picks of classic Christmas cinema to the table for scrutiny through a gendered lens ̶ from high-risers The Apartment and Die Hard, to the spiky Edward Scissorhands, via the yellow brick road of The Wizard Of Oz. A big thank you to HOME Manchester for a wonderful six-episode partnership, to MUBI and Cameo Productions for their support in 2019, and to our house band, MX Tyrants. Girls On Film is an HLA production, Exec produced by Hedda Archbold and audio produced by Jane Long.
