Evenimentele din cadrul festivalului se vor desfasura intre dupa-amiaza zilei de vineri, 12 octombrie, si sfarsitul zilei de duminica, 14 octombrie, cu ateliere, discutii, proiectii de film si actiuni pe timpul zilei si serii, si concerte de muzica/show-uri noaptea. Lucrari de arta vizuala vor fi expuse pe toata perioada festivalului.

Anul acesta, colectivul LF-Ro a decis sa colaboreze cu H.arta, un grup de trei artiste format in 2001. Grupul detine o galerie proprie, organizeaza expozitii, intalniri, dezbateri si ateliere si dezvolta proiecte in afara galeriei, implicand participarea unor artisti invitati sau a unor grupuri activiste si gravitand in sfera dialogului si atitudinii critice. In cadrul proiectului lor PROJECT SPACE, H.arta va gazdui portiunea din programul Ladyfest 2007 ce cuprinde ATELIERE pe teme variate – cum ar fi +++idei preconcepute: o zi in media, +++strategii anti-rasiste, +++vegan baking, +++identitati queer/(bi)sexualitate, +++maternitatea si implicatiile sale sociale si politice, +++un text colectiv despre teama, +++radical reading, +++gen si wikipedia/prezenta femeilor in spatii pe internet, +++activism video, +++corporalitatea noastra, +++feminist self-defense, +++intro to open source software, +++zine-making – precum si DISCUTII, prezentari si dezbateri pe teme ca +++femei si stiinta/tehnologie, +++comunicare ne-ierarhica, feminista, non-violenta si organizare in grup, +++prostitutie, trafic uman si violenta impotriva femeilor. In plus, festivalul va incorpora o serie de PROIECTII VIDEO si discutii organizate de Asociatia D Media/Joanne Richardson pe teme legate de post-comunism, tranzitie, munca femeilor, delocalizare si migratie, gen si precaritate. De asemenea, vor mai fi proiectate si cateva filme din biblioteca Ladyfest.

[zina lf-ro#2] Marturii din “zona de razboi”

Am vazut War Zone pentru prima data la intalnirea LadyFest de vara trecuta. De atunci, l-am revazut de cel putin cinci ori si mi-a lasat aceeasi impresie de fiecare data. Perceptia comuna despre hartuirea sexuala e formata de cazurile putinelor persoane care au hotarat sa-si actioneze in justitie hartuitorii. Regizoarea filmului War Zone aduce discutia la un alt nivel, si anume felul in care hartuirea de pe strada amplifica sentimentul de nesiguranta experimentat de femei.
Maggie Hadleigh-West, care nu e doar regizoarea, ci si protagonista peliculei, se plimba pe strada cu o camera de filmat in mana, nu doar cu intentia de a afla ce gandesc barbatii pe langa care trece si care o abordeaza ci si de a folosi aceasta unealta ca o arma impotriva lor, in acelasi fel in care ei isi indreapta remarcile sau chiar gesturile impotriva femeilor, de indata ce acestea ies din casa neinsotite. Reactiile barbatilor pe langa care trece variaza, asa cum cititoarele vor intui, de la “buna ziua, papusa” pana la “ce buna esti!”. Eroina noastra se decide sa se puna chiar in situatii extreme, intervievandu-i pe barbatii cu care intra in contact in legatura cu motivele pentru care abordeaza femeile pe strada. Interlocutorii lui Maggie Hadleigh-West sunt rapid pusi intr-o dificultate din care rezulta dialoguri savuroase.
