We Make Movies On Weekends and #WomenInFilm2018 present a FREE screening of BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER!

Natasha Lyonne stars in this satirical cult comedy directed by Jamie Babbit which sees a popular cheerleader sent to conversation camp when those around her suspect she’s a lesbian.

''Megan considers herself a typical American girl. She excels in school and cheerleading, and she has a handsome football-playing boyfriend, even though she isn't that crazy about him. So she's stunned when her parents decide she's gay and send her to True Directions, a boot camp meant to alter her sexual orientation. While there, Megan meets a rebellious and unashamed teen lesbian, Graham. Though Megan still feels confused, she starts to have feelings for Graham.''

Presented by We Make Movies On Weekends, a publication and production company dedicated to talking about film…and making them too, join us at Genesis Cinema for this outrageous comedy and enjoy free pom-poms and a cheer-off for some great competition prizes .

#WomenInFilm2018 is presented in association with Birds Eye View, Hackney Wicked Women, WFTV, F-Rated, Bechdel Test Fest, Cinesisters and #genesisters. As part of this year-long season we'll be screening only films that have: a female director/co-director, a female writer/co-writer, or a strong/iconic female lead.
