A massive thanks also goes to our amazing  Volunteer Coordinator, Charlotte. Thank you for your enthusiasm and energy. You were wonderful!

We’ll be looking for more volunteers for WOFFF18 so if you’re interested in a film-focused, fun, friendly volunteering opportunity, watch this space! Our shout-out for volunteers will be in Autumn 2018.

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.
