Developing Countries Focus
Come and hear from the Afghan women who risk their lives to make films. Join us to take a trip around Nigerian Nollywood, the world's third largest film industry, led by the inspirational producer Peace Anyiam-Fiberesima. Meet an animator from Trinidad and Tobago, and the talented director of Goddesses - a documentary depicting ordinary women leading extra-ordinary lives in India.
It almost makes no sense to group these films together, such is the diversity of these far-flung places. Yet, with the world - and the film industry - in its current set up, it is still a rare treat to see the work of women outside our own geo-political niche, let alone to have the chance to quizz them in person. Don't miss this golden opportunity!
