Sheffield International Documentary Festival: Lifting the Lid

Updated Wednesday 4th June 2014

Chella Quint invites viewers to join her on a brief journey through the history of disposable 'feminine hygiene product' adverts.

About the competition

The Mandrake Films/The Open University Specialist Factual New Talent Pitch was held at the 2013 Sheffield International Documentary Festival. The competition gives new talent presenters, from a range of expert backgrounds, the chance to show what they can do to a panel of specialist factual commissioning editors, funders and producers. Each presenter pitches cutting-edge research that they think would make a great documentary.

The winner

The winner for 2013 was Chella Quint, for her project Lifting the Lid.  

In Lifting the Lid, Chella invites viewers to join her on a brief journey through the history of disposable 'feminine hygiene product' adverts and to consider their impact on the way we talk about (or don’t talk about) menstruation today.
