Short Documentary: If Not Now – Sexism In Newcastle’s Live Music Scene

I haven’t updated this site in a while, but in case you’re wondering what I’ve been up to? I completed my bachelor of communications with distinction and am now well into writing my thesis.

For my major project to complete my Comms degree, though, I decided to tackle sexism in my local live music scene through a short documentary I directed through collaboration with friends. It was challenging, hearing the stories from these women, many of whom are artists I’m close to. But I believe I did them a small justice, giving them space to speak and connect to each other about their craft and what they put up with to share it.

The is If Not Now…

Winner of Best Production at Festival X, If Not Now is a student documentary about the culture of sexism and gender discrimination in the Newcastle live music scene. Made as a Major Project for the University of Newcastle.
