This strand is a showcase of work by women directors or films with female content.
Unfortunately, it is still super-important to make sure women’s voices and women’s stories are represented equally on the screen. The situation is getting better, and there are an increasing number of films by female filmmakers making the festival rounds, but until the day there’s proper equality in this matter, we will continue to create this strand each year.
This year the films we are showing here are My Sunny Maad, Porcelain, Shadow and Subjects of Desire. Let’s make those female voices be heard loud and clear.
