At Women Over 50 Film Festival we celebrate the work of older women on both sides of the camera. We’re looking to them to drive our stories – as film-makers and performers – and invite you to become part of Women Over 50 Film Festival family.
Our next festival is 14 – 17September 2017 in Brighton. We’re launching on Thursday 14 September at Picturehouse Duke of York’s, followed by two days of films, Q&As, talks and workshops at The Sallis Benney Theatre in the University of Brighton on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September.
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. Find out more about all the films screened here.
