Panel: Women in Horror
Saturday, October 29th, 12:45pm, Room 1
The wider view of horror, both as a genre and a community, is that it was and continues to be unfriendly to women. But is it the case, are things changing, and if so, how?
The Requiem Fear Fest presents a panel of guests to discuss the current and future role of women in horror, both in front of and behind the camera. From horror as purveyor of sexism and misogyny to vehicle for feminist expression or simply a fun form of entertainment beloved by women as much as by men, be on hand to help deconstruct this often touchy but undeniably important topic with us.
