Belfast Film Festival is delighted to welcome back home Northern Irish film journalist and author Helen O Hara, to talk about her new book.

In her book Women vs Hollywood: The Fall and Rise of Women in Film, film critic and "geek queen" Helen O'Hara takes a closer look at the pioneering and talented women of Hollywood and their work in film since Hollywood began. And in understanding how women were largely written out of Hollywood's own origin story, and how the films we watch are put together, we can finally see how to put an end to a picture that is so deeply unequal - and discover a multitude of stories out there just waiting to be told.

"A page-turning read, peppered with humour" - Sight & Sound
