We’re delighted that Greta Scacchi is backing our work, along with some other big hitters of TV, film and stage. Joely Richardson, Amanda Donohoe and Denise Welch have all recently come out in support of WOFFF.
Joely Richardson, part of the Redgrave theatrical dynasty and star of Hollywood movies 101 Dalmatians and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, says “It’s so wonderful that the film industry has started to embrace women of all ages, and especially women in their vintage years.
“Ageism and sexism hopefully are relics of a bygone era. Actors are storytellers, and stories of older women are magnificent – for those extra years! How wonderful that this festival is putting this in the spotlight.”
