Women Over 50 Film Festival

Student Prize at WOFFF 2023

We’re taking submissions for the 9th edition of the Women Over 50 Film Festival and students can submit for free!

Submit your film or script via FilmFreeway before Tuesday 4 July.

Every year at WOFFF we aim to increase conversations between generations and although we know not all students are young people, many students are, and we offer a Student Prize to encourage this dialogue to open up further.

Festival Director, Nuala O’Sullivan says, “At WOFFF we want to make a difference in the fight for gender and age equality and we hope this prize will encourage emerging and student filmmakers to consider older women as cast and crew when they’re creating work.”

Full details on how to submit a student film can be found, along with our regular submissions on FilmFreeway.

Who can enter the Student Prize?

Every student!

As long as you are in full or part-time adult education, or if you have graduated in the last academic year (i.e., for WOFFF 2023 submissions, students who graduated in 2022) which complies with all the rules about film submissions.

Everyone is eligible to submit a film to Women Over 50 Film Festival. There’s no upper or lower age limit, and it’s not only open to women.
