Vote 100: Born a Rebel

Both YFA and NEFA are very excited to be working in partnership with Cinema For All and North West Film Archive, as part of the Vote 100: Born a Rebel campaign, and to share the official trailer for our newly-commissioned short film of the same name.

Featuring wonderful footage from the Yorkshire, North East and North West Film Archives, the film was made in response to the lack of women's voices in archives.  

The title was inspired by the words of Mrs Elizabeth Dean, who, still a proud suffragette at 100 years old, told the camera :

“Between you and I, I think I must have been born a rebel!”

If you want to see Mrs Dean in action for yourself, then come along to one of Cinema For All's special live events, at which the Vote 100: Born a Rebel film will be shown. As well as film screenings, these will include live music, panel discussions, spoken word, theatre performance, children’s workshops, tasty food and women being great to each other.
