At Women Over 50 Film Festival we celebrate the work of older women on both sides of the camera. We look 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. More festival details and ticket information here.
In 2015 we held our first prototype festival – Short Hot Flush – celebrating women over 50 in film. We screened 27 international short films, 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 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.
