Come together to mark LGBT+ History Month’s 2023 theme ‘Behind the Lens’ in Tower Hamlets with Women Over 50 Film Festival, who will be presenting a range of short films celebrating LBTQ+ older women in front of and behind the camera, plus Q&A with the director of WOFFF.
About Women Over 50 Film Festival:
Women Over 50 Film Festival (affectionately known as 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.
Our biggest and ultimate goal is to achieve equality and parity for older women in film. We do this by spotlighting women over 50 who are making film and championing all filmmakers who are centring women over 50 in their work.
We address 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.
