Films for the Feminist Classroom (FFC) is hosted by the Department of Multicultural Womens and Gender Studies at Texas Woman’s University. FFC, an online, open-access journal, publishes film reviews that provide a critical assessment of the value of films as pedagogical tools in the feminist classroom. Special features, such as interviews with filmmakers, reviews of film festivals and discussions about pedagogy further promote engagement and discussion in the classroom. These special features also support its aims to serve as a resource for educators and librarians and to enhance feminist curricula, bringing film into the classroom through thought-provoking, relevant and dynamic content.

Visit the FFC website to view its most recent journal issue, entitled “Teaching #BlackLivesMatter with Film and Video." This issue offers various activities for educators to help their students grapple with U.S. racial politics and, more specifically, the legacies and contemporary expressions of anti-Black racism in the United States. The issue also includes film reviews about different topics, including the neoliberal dimensions of labor and economy, reproductive health and justice, immigration, the politics of food, the performance of gender and gender play in performances, feminist art, religion, mixed-race identities and sexuality.
