FILM SUBMISSION: ‘Nottingham’ by Ayelen Barrios

Our ‘Women Film-Makers’ segment wants to try to showcase the work of budding women directors. This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be making films as a profession, or submitting them to festivals, you can submit something you made for a school project, or just lil experimental stuff you’ve shot by yourself or with friends. All we need is a bit of writing about yourself and the film, and a working YouTube/Vimeo link. Click here for more details on how to submit.

Ayelen Barrios is a recent graduate from Ryerson University, completing her MA in Film Production. Her thesis project examined Literary inspired Web Series and she was thrilled to find that it is a genre filled with women writers, creators and directors.

Nottingham is a gender-bent Robin Hood story. When Rory doesn’t get picked for a school internship she suspects it had something to do with her gender and decides to start a war against her university, using her vigilante alter-ego Robin Hood.
