While recent scholarship has helped uncover specific stories of women in different commercial cinema industries, there remains a lacuna around the role of amateur women filmmakers within national amateur contexts. This article considers the representation of women’s creative labour across the 1960s within a dominant and patriarchal trade journal, Britain’s Amateur Cine World. Combining feminist and digital humanities approaches allows us to analyse data from this magazine to reveal recurring debates and tensions around women’s amateur creativity, with particular concerns around domesticity, leisure, and the gendered nature of technology.
