This article offers information on the fourth Birds Eye View (BEV) Film Festival. Originally launched in 2002, the festival is a celebration of international women filmmakers. Its founding was motivated by the fact that women make up only 7 percent of film directors in Great Britain. Beginning only from one short film event in 2002, BEV has grown to a week-long international film festival across London, England, with year-round activity that includes national tours and the First Weekenders Club. Future plan includes the establishment of creative laboratories that will house female talent from various disciplines and will provide opportunities to pitch feature ideas to be taken into development.
