WOFFF needs your help

WOFFF needs your help if it is to continue to grow and thrive. WOFFF is a community made up of volunteers, filmmakers, audiences, guest speakers, workshop facilitators, judges, supporters and sponsors. Your sponsorship can make a huge practical difference – from hosting a workshop, to offering affordable ticket prices or offering filmmaker prizes.

How you can help

We’d love you to help us as we strive to make this year’s WOFFF the best one yet.  Click here to drop us a line if you’d like to get involved with WOFFF.

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.


Huge thanks to our partners and sponsors who have helped make WOFFF20 Online happen.


Our patron Greta Scacchi (Versailles and War & Peace)  has been a long-time supporter of 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.”

Joely Richardson, Amanda Donohoe and Denise Welch have also voiced their support for WOFFF.


Huge thanks to our partners and sponsors who have helped make WOFFF19 happen.
