The Feminist Film Festival in Bucharest, Romania is aiming to "create spaces and contexts for dialogue and to keep fighting for gender equality". The festival is taking place 13-16 October.
The organisers argue we still need feminism in 2022: "We continue to organize this festival because we want to explore the issues that both women and men face in patriarchal societies through a selection of films that address topics such as human rights, gender equality & gender-based violence, migration, gender roles , identity and intersectionality."
I am proud that they have selected Because Goddess is Never Enough. It will show on Saturday 14th at 16:30 in the programme 'Invisible Women'.
WOFFF22 was brilliant! I can't rate the event highly enough in terms of the quality of films that they showed, the blending of the in-person and online festival, the organisation and the welcome. So proud to have taken part. And they've summed it all up pretty well in this highlights reel...
