The Films Of Jean Rollin
Triskel Arts Centre is proud to announce its association with The F-Rating initiative. Developed in the Bath Film Festival in 2014, the F-Rating is a new film rating which will highlight those with a strong female voice.
To earn an F-rating, a movie has to answer yes to one of these three questions: does it have a female director, does it have a female writer, or are there significant female characters on screen in their own right? Triskel Arts Centre has voluntarily incorporated this rating.
More information on F-Rating can be found online at: www.bathfilmfestival.org.uk/f-rated or on Twitter: @F__Rating
