Started in 2009, the Bloody Breasts webseries is made up of two parts; a series of interviews and a panel held during the Fantasia Film Festival. Originally intended as a Master's Thesis project, the interviews focus on the women who make up the independant horror community, from directors and writers to the producers and actors.
Is horror a genre that can only be enjoyed by men? Does it still serve to reinforce desired gender roles/societal stereotypes? Can a woman call herself a feminist AND still enjoy horror films?
In addition to presenting horror film events and websites initiated by women, this webseries focuses on female horror filmmakers, scream queens and fans of the genre. The topic of feminism and horror is then contextualized within the current horror industry, thanks to contributions from experts of the genre.

The Horror Industry
Hosted during the 2011 Fantasia Festival in Montreal, the Women in Horror panel was a conversation between 5 horror content creators. Moderated by Kier-La Janisse, this panel encouraged the audience to participate in a discussion with four women horror filmmakers who tackled everything from myths usually associated with women in horror, their experience within the genre, their creative process, and whether the question of gender is still relevant when looking at the current horror film industry.
Thanks to Jaffer Hasan who graciously volunteered to film the panel!
