WOMEN AND SILENT BRITISH CINEMA was set up in 2007 to collate and share research being undertaken on women and cinema in Britain during the silent era.

As well as making up a large part of the cinema audience, it is now widely recognised that women played an important role in the development of the British film industry. Read more about this site or click here to find out more about some of the women working in the various branches of British silent cinema.

To find out more about women working in the film industry during the silent era, or if you are interested in contributing an entry on a woman (British or otherwise), please visit the Women Film Pioneers Project.
