Another Screen was launched in March 2021 as an irregular streaming platform. It has so far showcased seven programmes, featuring filmmakers including Marguerite Duras, Carole Roussopoulos, Cecilia Mangini, Mara Mattuschka, VALIE EXPORT, Anita W. Addison, Gloria Camiruaga, Fronza Woods, Marie-Claude Treilhou and Djouhra Abouda.
Other programmes included its month-long ‘Films for a Free Palestine’ which went on to tour cinemas and museums worldwide and was accompanied by a fundraiser, which raised over £12k for organisations in the occupied territories.
Girish Shambu on Another Screen for Film Quarterly: “Shreir herself has provided a thoughtful counter-model through the example of Another Screen, the innovatively designed streaming platform she launched earlier this year. The seven series so far have been accompanied by carefully selected and arranged framing materials: interviews, essay excerpts and program notes from a wide range of sources including critics, scholars, curators, and the filmmakers themselves. This historically informed and context-sensitive framing has taken care to steer clear of the rhetoric of “firsts,” “discoveries,” and “forgotten films.” The inaugural film series on the platform showcased eight films by Cecilia Mangini, alongside a scholarly essay and a newly translated interview; the fact that Mangini is considered to be Italy’s first female documentary filmmaker was mentioned nowhere.
Another Screen’s most successful program to date has been “For a Free Palestine,” a series of over 30 films by nearly 20 Palestinian women directors that streamed for a month this summer. Made up mostly of short films from the 21st century by directors such as Basma Alsharif, Emily Jacir, Larissa Sansour, Razan AlSalah, and Reem Shilleh, the program spanned experimental, documentary and animated works. It screened worldwide for free, with subtitles that Shreir commissioned for an array of languages. In conjunction with the program, she also created a GoFundMe page for medical, legal and infrastructural aid on the ground in Gaza.”

The Legacies of Sarah Maldoror
Following the death of the filmmaker Sarah Maldoror, I created a short film programme and event, which over 2,000 people attended. The latter was done in collaboration with Yasmina Price. The event programme was as follows:
Annouchka de Andrade and Henda Ducados introduce the life and work of their mother, Sarah Maldoror.
A bilingual reading of extracts of Aimé Césaire’s Cahiers d’un retour au pays natal (Return to my Native Land), by Marie-Julie Chalu and Gazelle Mba. Reading of extracts from the work of Frantz Fanon, by Rooney Elmi.
A roundtable discussion about the legacies of Sarah Maldoror. The conversation will consider Maldoror’s work as an archival practice, an alternative form of historiography and a model for the necessity of cultural and artistic practices as part of revolutionary struggle. It will also consider Maldoror’s place as part of a broader context of anticolonial filmmaking around the time of African independence movements and the ways her work might be in dialogue with contemporary Black feminist filmmaking. With Yasmina Price, Beti Ellerson, Awa Konaté, Janaína Oliveira and Nuotama Bodomo, followed by audience discussion.
