Alice Guy-Blaché: Short Films

Forum Cinema Hexham   /   Sunday 22nd March 

Selection of short films by Alice Guy-Blache.

From 1896 to 1906 Alice Guy-Blaché was probably the only woman film director in the world. A filmmaking pioneer, she went on to make films in Hollywood up until the 1920s, when she returned to France and was seemingly erased from cinema history.

We’re shining a light on her career with a selection of her finest films including: Falling Leaves (1912), The Little Rangers (1912), Matrimony’s Speed Limit (1913), and The Ocean Waif (1916).


Make it a double bill with Forum Cinema Hexham’s screening of Be Natural: The Untold Story of Alice Guy-Blaché at 16:45.
