Open Call for Collaboration on the FEMglocal Documentary

The FEMglocal – Global Feminist Movements: Interactions and Contradictions research project aims to analyze global feminist movements grounded in the Portuguese context, mapping feminist activist movements in Portugal. It seeks to contribute to recovering the historical memory of the social invisibility of feminist movements in the national territory, focusing on strategies of social mobilization, communication, and media visibility.

Within the scope of FEMglocal, a documentary is currently in development, drawing inspiration from the ongoing research results and aiming to explore the history of feminisms in Portugal through an intersectional lens. 

In this regard, FEMglocal invites all individuals, activists, collectives, groups, and associations to participate in the making of this documentary by submitting photographic, graphic, video, and audio materials The project strives to foster a truly collaborative and representative process reflecting the diverse landscape of Portuguese feminisms. The ultimate goal is to craft an audiovisual document that engages the public in reflecting on the past and present of feminisms in Portugal.

FEMglocal is particularly interested in receiving two specific types of materials to enhance the richness of the documentary’s audiovisual narrative:

Feminist Archive:

  • Images, videos, posters, and audio recordings capturing feminist activist actions (both past and present) that contribute to the recovery of the memory of Portuguese feminisms.

Preparation for the Feminist Strike (8M) in 2024:

  • Recordings of meetings/actions related to the organization, in audio, video, and/or photography.
  • Sharing of posters and graphic materials associated with the preparation.
  • Photographs, videos, and/or audio documenting the behind-the-scenes of organizing this day, from putting up posters to various preparatory activities.

The project aims to incorporate the stories of all individuals into its documentary, recorded through personal cameras, mobile phones, old photos, etc. FEMglocal ensures that all submissions will be handled with the utmost respect, providing proper authorship credit.
