Greta Scacchi, star of Versailles and War & Peace, is our patron. Greta supports WOFFF particularly because it is tackling the discrimination older women face in the media. She says, “I am delighted that Women Over 50 Film Festival is here to upset the Hollywood apple cart that accepts actresses playing ten years older while actors can play ten years younger. This festival is unique in celebrating rather than hiding or ignoring older women in film. WOFFF rejoices in our older stories, older faces and older hearts and it is my pleasure to be associated with the Festival.”

We’d like to say a huge thanks to all the fine folks whose generosity makes it possible to bring you Women Over 50 Film Festival.
