Women in Focus Collection (Film, video and visual arts)
Women in Focus was a woman-run non-profit feminist arts and media group dedicated to film, video and the visual arts formed in 1974 in association with the Women’s Office at the University of British Columbia. Its productions, some of which are available on this website, are very much a reflection of feminism’s rich cultural debates in the late 20th century.
