IFI and WFT present an inspiring programme of new short films to coincide with International Women’s Day, selected from a significant volume of work submitted by WFT members. While these films couldn’t differ more in style, scope, genre, and theme, they all have one thing in common: they are directed and created by the Irish film industry’s most talented up-and-coming female creatives.
Our very special guest Juanita Wilson will introduce a special prize to the winning films. When the films are over, please join us afterward for a glass of wine.
IFI has kindly provided a space to screen and critically engage with our member’s work.
