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.

We launched 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.
