Upcoming screenings 2018

Our next screening is the Best of the Fest – an afternoon filled with the prizewinning  short films from Women Over 50 Film Festival 2017. We’ll be in Mother’s Ruin Gin Palace on Sunday 28 January 2018 starting at 4:00 8 PM, screening our best animation, drama, documentary and experimental films, as well as our Emerald Life Audience Choice films. This event is in part a thank you to Mother’s Ruin for being such a fabulous supporter of our film festival since we started in 2015.


This is a FREE event, although donations are very welcome! So come along and join us for a great afternoon of shorts and gin!

We’re excited to see so much blue in our map. It’s great to have filmmakers from Afghanistan, Iran and Egypt submitting work to us for the first time.

If you are or you know any filmmakers from the grey areas in our map, please help us get the word out and help WOFFF be even more blue next year.
