For Film's Sake

26 April 2017 - 30 April 2017

Focusing on experience, For Film’s Sake (FFS) – formerly the WOW Film Festival – activates content in new and unexpected ways, challenging audiences to actively engage in the problem of a lack of thriving diversity in the film industry. 

By activating content and placing it at the forefront of innovative exhibition, FFS will shift the conversation from the ‘worthiness’ of female filmmakers to their innovation in the face of gross disparity.

FFS’s objective is to pave the way for the future of audiences – rather than the present – and will curate a wide selection of films made by women for audiences crossing all language groups and demographics.
