Women Of The Lens is a live festival of film, broadcast and digital programming. It was created to celebrate and highlight the achievements of Black British women in the UK creative film industries.

Founded by Jenifer G. Robinson, it was created because the representation of Black women in the UK film industries remains stubbornly low. It was created to highlight the complexity, diversity and multiplicities of black women, which is ordinarily overlooked in the conventional media-sphere.
