In the run-up to Remake. Frankfurt Women's Film Days, Kinothek Asta Nielsen invites you to write collectively in Wikipedia!

There will be introductory tutorials ("How to read an article on Wikipedia" and “How to create an article") as well as inputs on redlinks, version histories, criteria of relevance and feminist wiki networks by the collectives Who writes his_tory? and Wiki_riot_squad. Archival and research material for articles on previously undocumented or sparsely documented filmmakers and film collectives with a focus on this year's Remake program will be prepared in a WIKI LIBRARY by Orlando Collective.
