Submissions Map

Here’s our 2018 submissions map so far:

We’re excited to see so much blue on our map. It’s great having filmmakers from Bulgaria, Georgia, India, Israel and Kazakhstan submitting work to us for the first time, as well as seeing filmmakers from Canada, USA and UK and Spain submitting work to us again.

If you are or you know any filmmakers from the grey areas on our map, please help us get the word out and help the WOFFF18 map be the bluest ever!

Student submissions

This year WOFFF is introducing a Student Prize to encourage younger filmmakers to actively consider older women and to collaborate with them when writing, casting and directing their films. Prizes for the winning student film include £200 cash, a winner’s certificate and the film’s being part of WOFFF’s Best of the Fest Tour which screens in cinemas and community venues around the UK.

We’re proud to be introducing free student submissions this year. Campaigns like #TimesUp and #MeToo highlight how much festivals like WOFFF are needed. At WOFFF we want to play a part in the fight for gender and age equality and we hope this new initiative will encourage students to join us in this to and to become part of the WOFFF community.

Full details of our student submissions rules can be found on our Filmfreeway page.

Bursary

WOFFF is committed to screening a diversity of older women’s voices worldwide. A bursary fund is available to assist a small number of filmmakers to submit work to WOFFF. In 2017 WOFFF offered bursaries to filmmakers with work from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Korea, Egypt and Iran to enabled them to submit their film without a submission fee.
