Our next festival is 14 – 17  September 2017 in Brighton.

We’ve increased in size and scope this year, moving from smaller community spaces to the larger Picturehouse House Duke of York’s and The Sallis Benney Theatre at the University of Brighton.

WOFFF 2017 launches on Thursday 14 September with Mamma Mia the feel-good gem that not only stars three strong, older women – Meryl Streep, Julie Walters and Christine Baranski – but also has three strong, older women at the helm behind the camera – writer Catherine Johnson, producer Judy Craymer and director Phyllida Lloyd.

On Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September the festival moves along Grand Parade to the University of Brighton’s Sallis Benney Theatre for two days filled with over 50 events – film screenings, special guests, filmmaker Q&As, and talks. We’ve also got some brilliant workshops lined up for you on radical embroidery, making a film on your smart phone, and tips and tricks of shooting drama from a Holby City and Coronation Street TV director.

The festival closes on Sunday evening with an awards ceremony – jury prizes for all winning filmmakers with and an Audience Choice Award.
