Film Screening: Freezing Fertility - 19 January 2023 - 19 January 2023

Please note that this event has passed.


Join us at the iconic venue, The Prince Charles Cinema on Leicester Square and enjoy popcorn, fertility, a fantastic panel and a great crowd of reproduction people.

Fertility is rapidly changing now that thousands are freezing their eggs and ovaries across the world. The film takes us on a journey to meet the people who ship donor eggs around the globe, try to preserve their future fertility, or propose women should postpone menopause with a slice of frozen ovary.

Shot during the Covid lockdowns across the UK, Spain and the Netherlands, Freezing Fertility is a new feature documentary that paints a portrait of the dilemmas that today's generation face as they navigate new technologies and a highly-privatised fertility industry.
