Melbourne Women in Film Festival
22 February 2018 - 25 February 2018
The Melbourne Women in Film Festival is a not-for-profit festival aimed at celebrating and supporting the work of women filmmakers and creatives – from directors, writers and producers to cinematographers, sound designers and editors.
This annual festival endeavours to promote the many talented women who work within all areas of film production, and to encourage and inspire women with creative aspirations to pursue their passions with confidence.
The Melbourne Women in Film Festival (MWFF) launches with a mini-retrospective of the 1975 International Women’s Film Festival. From the Australian films screened at the 1975 festival, MWFF have curated a program to revisit the aims of the original festival in challenging industrial gender imbalance, exploring the representation of women’s bodies and the diversity of women’s perspectives, and providing a space for self-determination and empowerment through creativity.
Screening alongside these films are a selection of contemporary shorts and two panel forums exploring the position of women in screen culture.
