Tracey Francis is based in London, England. She began screening women-focussed films and discussions with friend Else Thomson after seeing Black Swan in 2010 and being very disappointed with the representation of women. This reaction led to them setting up a film group that met regularly in SE15* to discuss this representation. The group then progressed onto curated film programmes and Q&As that are part of the Peckham and Nunhead Free Film Festival as well as screening F-Rated films at Deptford Cinema.
Tracey curated the first of Women in Film SE15’s two-day film workshops which created the short collective film Adults (2013). The next workshop was for young women, which produced the short Simi (2015). The Sunday Film Project came out of the group at that time developing their personal film narrative, and this collective project was screened online in 2015. In 2018 Women in Film SE15 will be running a script writing workshop.
Tracey Francis completed her M.A in Digital Film in May 2017 and her research focussed on web series and women filmmakers from 2011-2016. Her dissertation title was How are women filmmakers challenging the constraints of traditional film narrative and genre through web series?
