In 2015 we held our first prototype festival – Short Hot Flush – celebrating women over 50 in film. The festival screened 27 international short films (from over 60 submissions), hosted a panel event and awarded prizes for best animation, best drama and best documentary, as well as a prize for the audience choice award.
In 2016 we held our second festival. We screened 44 international short films, hosted an all-female panel event and a beginners’ filmmaking workshop. A full festival report will be published here soon.
For a film to be eligible for submission to WOFFF it has follow one of these two simple rules. The film has to have a women over 50 at its centre OR have a woman over 50 in the core creative team (writer, director or producer)
Our next festival is in 2017 in Brighton. So we hope to see you beside the seaside with us soon!
