WOMEN OVER 50 FILM FESTIVAL 2021 (2021)

  • Drama
  • 1h 42m

Women Over 50 Film Festival (WOFFF) champions and showcases the work of older women on screen and behind the camera with an annual short film festival and year round events and film screenings.

WOFFF addresses the ageism and sexism many women face in the film industry. We screen films celebrating older women on both sides of the camera. We believe inclusive spaces to watch films together and conversations between generations of women can help make older and younger women feel less isolated and feel more connected.

WOFFF is a volunteer-led and volunteer-run Community Interest Company. We’re a friendly, inclusive bunch and would love you to become part of our community. Everyone is welcome at WOFFF. Anyone can submit a film to WOFFF or attend our events: there’s no upper age limit and all genders are invited to submit films and come to our festival.

WOFFF aims to:

- showcase outstanding work of older women on screen and behind the camera - create a film community centred around older women - help combat isolation and loneliness in older women
